Our Finest Hour | Dunkirk & The Battle of Britain

Thu 27 September
Victoria Hall

BBC Big Band (dir. Barry Forgie)
Annie Gill vocalist
Kevin Whately presenter

To coincide with the lead up to Remembrance Day, we look back in words and music at the momentous turning point of World War Two, and Britain’s finest hour, from the miracle of Dunkirk to the decisive victory of the Battle of Britain. 

From Vera Lynn and Gracie Fields to the Andrews Sisters and Glenn Miller, the songs and music of the 1940s are as well-loved today as ever. Featuring the songs that won the war – such as We’ll Meet Again, The White Cliffs of Dover and A Nightingale Sang On Berkeley Square – as well as some of the classic music it inspired, including the Dam Busters March and the music from Ron Goodwin’s memorable scores to Battle of Britain and 633 Squadron.

With the famous speeches of Winston Churchill, and the best tunes of the time from the dance halls and wireless, join the BBC Big Band and stars of the West End in a unique celebration of Our Finest Hour, presented by much-loved TV star Kevin Whately (Inspector MorseLewisAuf Wiedersehen, Pet).
