The Vera Lynn Story, Sincerely Yours, is a brand new show from the producers of Salute to 1940’s. Endorsed by Dame Vera Lynn, it will take you through an amazing life of the Forces sweetheart. The Vera Lynn story starts in the 1930’s where she made her name as a big band singer. It culminates in a rousing selection of hits as a global superstar and the Forces sweetheart in the 1940’s. There is also video footage and a personal message from Dame Vera given to Lorrie for all her fans. The show tours theatres around UK with a ‘live’ 7 piece band and George Formby tribute.
Fans are loving this music from a bygone era played by a professional band of 7 talented musicians, using the same instruments young Vera Lynn worked with in the 1930’s. “If it’s 1940s you want, contact these people.” Phil Spain. Ramsgate Tunnels 1940’s.
Portrayed by multi award winning artiste Lorrie Brown, Lorrie was invited to meet the leading lady, who congratulated her on this show.
