Me with MC Mr Parker at The Canal Festival!
I’m afraid I’m going to have to be quick tonight as I’m busy working on show plans for Bletchley Park. This Saturday I’m opening the park’s Concert Series which runs through the month of August. Famous for allied code braking during WW2 Bletchley Park hosts a number of events and heritage days through out the year. I’m thrilled to be opening the season. Last year I performed my “We’ll Meet Again” show in ATS uniform and this year I am returning with my Wrens show “The Fleets in Port Again”. For more details please click the link below and it will be delightful to see you. https://bletchleypark.org.uk/event/fiona-harrison/
During the war more than 1600 Wrens worked at Bletchley Park so I thought this show would be a fitting tribute to the huge contribution they made to the British war effort. Entrance to my concert is included in the museum’s ticket price and I shall be performing 2 x 45 minute sets from 12.15pm. For my second set I will be returning in Hollywood
Waiting To Go On Stage at The Canal Festival!
glamour and I’ve made myself a new 1940s hat for the occasion. Judi has also made me a new dress from an original 1940s pattern which I’m looking forward to wearing very much. I hope it will cut a dash and look bright and colorful in the press photos.
This week I was featured in the Leighton Buzzard Observer news paper and you can read all about my forth coming Bletchley Park show by clicking the enclosed link. https://www.leightonbuzzardonline.co.uk/news/people/forties-sweetheart-fiona-harrison-returns-to-bletchley-park-next-weekend-3787358
All Change For the TNMOC!
This week I’ve been extremely busy as I performed my Pearly Queen show as part of the Leighton Buzzard canal festival last Saturday. It was the first time I had performed for this particular event and we couldn’t have wished for better weather. The sun shone down all day and the festival attracted record breaking numbers. It took place at Tiddenfoot Lake and I had a very tight schedule. Straight afterwards I was booked to play at The National Museum of Computing for the staff BBQ. I had my time planned with military precision and everything worked in perfectly as I opened with “Underneath the Arches” in Leighton Buzzard and finished with a vintage mix and “Thank-you for the Music” at Block H, Bletchley Park.
Both shows went extremely well and I shall leave you with a few of my favorite photos.
Mush dash, Keep Following Toodle Pip and Bye for Now! 😉
Thank-you for the Music!
