Tickets from £26.50

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. To coincide with the lead up to the celebration of VE 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.

Hear the songs that won the war – We’ll Meet AgainThe 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 classic 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.
