Today’s the Day! Acorn’s VE Day 75th Anniversary Singalong concert is now live and free to view.
Performed by professional 1940s vocalist Miss Beth Belle, the song list includes evergreen wartime favourites such as ‘Sing As We Go’, ‘Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy’, ‘White Cliffs of Dover’, ‘Chattanooga Choo Choo’ and, of course, the Vera Lynn classic ‘We’ll Meet Again’.
There are also requests and messages from our friends at Steeton Court Nursing Home, who’ll be enjoying the show today as part of their own VE Day 75 celebrations. You can enjoy it too – just click on the link below to start watching the show:
