Major Swing and the Bluebelles: “Advance Britannia!”, 1945

Voices Across Time (VaT) invite you to a night of music, dance and theatre to celebrate Churchill's announcement of the Victory in Europe and to bid goodbye to Adderbury's American GI allies.

On the 21st July 2018, the Adderbury Parish Institute will step back in time to the year of 1945 and see the village’s own American GI Frank George, under his show persona ‘Major Swing’, lead a night of celebratory entertainment of American, English and Big Band classics. Headlining alongside will be the ‘Bluebelles’, the delightful three part harmony group inspired by the Andrew Sisters.

Jointhese groups in bidding farewell to the American GI soldiers who came to Britain to aid the resistance of the German invasion during World War II. Major Swing and the Bluebelles will take the crowds through an evening of singing and dancing, with wartime hits such as ‘Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy’, Goodman’s ‘Sing, Sing, Sing’ and Lynn’s ‘The White Cliffs of Dover’. The GI’s were well known for their lavish parties and boistous behavior so what better way to send them off than with a night of American-English merrymaking.
