About this event

Vera Lynn's songs defined a generation. She received a Damehood, was awarded the Burma Star, and was the first centenarian with a top 10 hit in the British charts. Come and sing along, as Melanie Gall and Emma Knights take you back to a time when the world was at war, and Vera Lynn's music galvanized and inspired troops overseas. As seen at Royal Albert Hall's Jazz series! 

"Gall's personality...is just as delightful as her singing." CBC
★★★★ Edmonton Journal, 2018
★★★★ The Londoner, 2018
