Forces Sweethearts at Christmas

Forces Sweetheart

Are you looking for something with a vintage theme to do at Christmas?  Our friends at Harrogate Theatres have a rather fabulous 1940s themed Forces Sweethearts at Christmas show on Wednesday 12th December 2012 at 2:30pm at the Royal Hall, Ripon Road.

Being a matinee show, it’s ideal if you don’t want a late night. The show will be a mixture of 1940s tunes from the original forces’ sweethearts Vera Lynn, Judy Garland and The Andrew Sisters, alongside some classic Christmas songs by the likes of Bing Crosby, and Frank Sinatra.  Plus, it’s a tagged sing-a-long, so the audience can join in with singing along to White Christmas, I’ll Be Home For Christmas, I Saw Mummy Kissing Santa Claus, Winter Wonderland, and many more.

They want to create a Blitz party, so they’re encouraging the audience to dress up in 1940s gear.  You could always attend one of our vintage fairs, and buy some items to wear to the show.  We’ve got Harrogate Does Vintage at the Harrogate Theatre on 10th November and York Does Vintage on 2nd December at the Merchant Adventurers’ Hall.  One of the easiest 1940s looks you can create is to wear a vintage headscarf.  We always have lots of beautiful scarves for sale at our events.



If all that has whetted you’re appetite for more Christmas music then Royal Hall are hosting a classical Christmas, A Viennese Strauss Christmas Gala on Friday 14 December.  this involves a thirty three piece British Philharmonic Orchestra performing some of the finest and most notable Strauss tunes along with traditional Christmas carols.  That’s bound to fill the audience with festive cheer!

If you’d like to book for either of these shows, please see the details below.
