There'll Always be an England

BCEX presents
There'll Always be an England

Neil Sands and his great team are back with the new 2014 production of their amazingly popular patriotic nostalgia show.

 

Come and enjoy a wonderful feel good afternoon filled with magical musical memories celebrating the very best of British Entertainment. Step back in time to the fabulous 40s with the likes of Vera Lynn and Flanagan & Allen. Into the 50s and the Golden Days of Rock & Roll with, Cliff Richard, Marty Wilde. Then come swinging into the 60s with The Beatles, Dusty Springfield, and many more. From Coronation Day 1953 to memories of the 1966 World Cup. From a Pearly King & Queen Cockney sing a long, to all time favourite show tunes a rousing selection from Last Night At The Proms, and finally as we commemorate the 100th Anniversary of The First World War and the 70th of D Day we present with pride a very special flag waving tribute to the VETERANS OF THE ARMED FORCES.

 

All lovingly presented by Neil Sands and his very talented cast of West End performers. Mixed with stunning costumes, a large dose of good old fashioned fun, and a unique atmosphere that will warm your heart.

 

So if you are proud to be British come and enjoy a trip down memory lane to a time when Britannia did rule the Waves and Blue Birds did fly over the White Cliffs of Dover.
