Lights to go on in Sidmouth

We’ll Meet Again when the Sidmouth Arts Club Operatic Society presents When the Lights Go On Again.

The show is a nostalgic record-breaking smash hit World War II musical. Think of a popular ’40s song and it is most likely in the show (ie, As Time Goes By, You’d Be So Nice to Come Home To, As I’ll Be Seeing You, I’ll Walk Alone, The White Cliffs of Dover, Run Rabbit Run, etc)!

The audience will be encouraged to join in singing the wartime songs and the society will be selling Union Jacks to wave during the show.

The flags are being sold to raise funds for the Royal Marines Benevolent Fund.

This isn’t just another WWII recollection – it’s about the love, laughter, tears and sadness of a family at war.
