Dressed for Action in my WAAF Uniform!
I’m afraid it’s just a quick blog tonight as I’m battling against the clock to get all my paperwork done in between shows. I’d like to begin by thanking every-one who can down to the Kings Arms to see my show in Newport Pagnell last Sunday. The booking came it that morning due to the weather improving over night and it turned into a lovely afternoon. I sang songs from the 1940s, 50s 60s & 70s and it was lovely to see you all, with a special thank-you to Catherine for inviting me.
I’ve continued to remain busy. I’ve been out every day this week performing WAAF shows to commemorate the “Battle of Britain” and this coming weekend I’m moving forward and combining popular songs from the late 1940s and 50s to fill the brief for a couple of private vintage

tea parties I have booked in the diary.
I’m fully booked for September and next weekend I’m heading off on tour to perform a series of shows along the South coast. I’m opening on Friday night 24th September at 7.30pm with the “Magic of the Musicals” at Portchester Castle. My performance is taking place inside St Mary’s Church and tickets are priced at £8 and are available from the Church Tea Room, Parish Office, after Sunday services or you can contact the Parish Office, Assheton Court, Portchester, PO16 9PY by telephone on Tel: 02392 321380 or e-mail Emma at email@example.com
I’m looking forward to the show very much. I have a wonderful program planned and I will be including songs from My Fair Lady, South Pacific, Grease, Les Miserables, Oliver, Disney, Aladdin and more. So if you happen to be in town do pop along – it will be delightful to see you.

From Portchester I’m heading along the coast to Brighton and on Monday night I will be at Danny House at Hurstpierpoint performing my Battle of Britain Show before heading back along the coast and finishing my tour in Fareham. I’m then straight into the recording studio on Saturday as I lay down my harmonies for my new song “Babies of the Blitz” and record my tracks in time to start filming on the 14th.
Phew – so much to do and I almost forgot to mention Proms in the Park. Last Saturday I had the pleasure of singing at Priory Park in Dunstable before the big screen went over live to the Royal Albert Hall. Once again we had

fantastic weather and I put together a wonderful program of Opera, popular war tunes and favorites from the Hollywood movie musicals. The park was packed and it was lovely to see people out and about enjoying themselves again after lock down.
Getting the timing right for Proms is essential as my shows have to tie in exactly with the Royal Albert Hall and it’s important not to run over. Fortunately I had made careful notes and I was pleased I got it just right. I shall leave you with a few shots. Keep Following Toodle Pip and Bye for Now!
