Tying a knot in it has always been a good aide memoir and this little feature will appear weekly to remind you of the exciting theatre and arts events in our area over the next couple of weeks.

If you are involved in anything or know of events that have slipped under my wire, please drop me an email:

Gracie Fields in France FORCES SWEETHEARTS at the Queen’s Theatre, Friday December 20, 2.15

Beryl Korman and Carolyn Allen, both seasoned TV and west end performers, bring an afternoon of nostalgia with a parade of songs and melodies that made war time Britain just that little more palatable.

They relive the time when stars of stage, screen and film, joined together to entertain the troops in many theatres or war.

With that picture in mind, Beryl and Carolyn bring their show ‘Forces Sweethearts’ to Hornchurch just in time for Christmas with the duo parading a full repertoire out of their kit bag from, ‘All I Want For Christmas’, ‘White Cliffs of Dover’ to the Andrews Sisters big hit with the Glen Miller Orchestra, ‘Chattanooga Choo Choo’.

Accompanied by Paul Smith and Will Hill on the drums, past performances have rated high on the emotional scale and the odd ream of Kleenex is regarded as essential

The show is two hours packed with songs and melodies that reminded the troops of the homes they left behind, and those at home of loved ones fighting for their country.

The show is at the Billet Lane theatre on Friday, December 20 at 2.30pm. Tickets are £12.50 and available form the box office on 01708 443333 or book on line at
