Description

Join us for the ultimate wartime variety show, A Salute to Dad’s Army at the Palace Hotel in the lovely spa town of Buxton!

To commemorate the 75th Anniversary of VE Day, this non-stop show of laughter, sketches and songs brings to life some of the best-loved characters from the ever-popular TV series Dad’s Army. The show also features award-winning tribute artists such as Lorrie Brown as Vera Lynn and Colin Bourdiec as George Formby, plus tributes to Flanagan and Allen, Gracie Fields, Frank Sinatra, Windsor Davies and Don Estelle, with Captain Mainwaring and the home guard from Walmington-on-Sea linking all the acts with brand-new comedy sketches.

Packed full of tributes to the stars who kept the nation entertained during World War Two, the show is all held together by air raid warden, Warden Braithwaite. With flags and bunting adding to the 1940s atmosphere, this afternoon of nostalgic entertainment promises to have you laughing and singing along!
