BROMSGROVE’S Royal British Legion is hoping the town will come together at Artrix on November 10 and ‘party like its 1944’.

Following the success of last year’s ‘Battle’s Over’ concert another extravaganza has been lined up for the evening of Remembrance Sunday.

Taking to the stage for the ‘Albert Hall Tribute’ will be Vintage Class, Kevin Ward, Fairfield and Music from Glen Miller.

Catherine Tabberner who broke the decibel record at Artrix last year with her rendition of Rule Britannia will be returning.

There will be also be a special appearance by ‘Mr Churchill’ for the Drum Head Ceremony to bring back memories of 1944.

And there will be a video of Betty Webb who played an important role in the Second World War as one of the code-breakers at Bletchley Park.

She will be talking about what she and her colleagues were tasked with doing at the time and events leading up to D-Day will also be explored on the night. This year mark’s the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
