Audiences can relive the spirit of the 1940s with the ever popular We’ll Meet Again revue.

A special matinee performance of the bright and breezy show is being performed at the Royal and Derngate in Northampton at 2.30pm on Wednesday April 27.

And just a few days later, popular comedian Julian Clary brings his show, The Joy of Mincing, to the theatre.

The afternoon presentation of We’ll Meet Again will evoke the spirit of the 1940s era, recreating the music and memories which kept Britain smiling through her darkest days.

Combining comedy routines with classic hits, an all-star cast includes West End singing star Maggie O’Hara performing the songs of Vera Lynn and Gracie Fields, ukulele virtuoso Andy Eastwood, and comedy entertainer Steve Barclay with his impressions of wartime comedians.

The supporting cast includes former Black and White Minstrel singer Mervyn Francis and special guest comedian and multi- instrumentalist Pete Lindup.

Live music will be provided throughout by the Martyn St James Band, in an afternoon show playing tribute to the armed forces of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Tickets for the show are £13 and are available by calling the box office on 01604 624811 or online at www.roaylandderngate.co.uk

Three days later comedian Julian Clary visits the theatre at 8pm on Saturday April 30.

The Joy of Mincing is his celebration of 30 years as a camp comedian and there is so much to tell.

His show will recall the ups and downs of his colourful love life as well as the true and heart stopping account of how he saved Dame Joan Collins’ life and so much more as well.

Tickets cost £24, box office details as above.
