Well it’s been quite an exciting week for me….
As it was VE Day last Wednesday I was doing a special 1940s show at Gilling Reane in Kendal. The residents and staff were brilliant and really enjoyed singing a long to the music and one or two got up for a dance when I sang the livelier 1940s music. It was a really lovely afternoon.
Then on Friday I was filming as a support artist for Coronation Street. It was so much fun, but I’m not allowed to discuss anything about it. But here’s a sneak picture of me on the cobbles with three fellow artists.
On Sunday I was singing at my first 1940s event this year which was at Brougham Hall Castle. What a fabulous venue it is and perfect for a 1940s event. The event was mostly about Military Vehicles and there were certainly a huge selection of Jeeps, tanks, cars, and bikes. I was singing in the afternoon just opposite the cafe, so I had a captive audience. I did 2 mixed sets of patriotic, sing a long and dance music. It was also lovely to see my Auntie Verna and cousin Lisa and her family as well as a couple of friends from Morecambe Gavin and Gill. I was also grateful for Adam my fiancé for coming up to help me set up my equipment as I now a vintage microphone and I’m still getting used to the sound and feel of it and Adam also took these pictures and many more and did some video footage.
This Sunday I’m looking forward to going to Haworth 1940s with my friends Gill and Gavin. I want to experience as many 1940s events as I can this year as this will prepare me for singing at these events and also because I just love the events.
Anyway I’m currently busy learning lots of new 40s Songs and perfecting my current ones as I’m off to sing at East Lancs Railway on the 25th May.
Have a a great weekend everyone and enjoy the sunshine!xx
