“Nightingale sings in Umdoni”

IN MARCH this year, Dame Vera Lynn turned 100 years old and the Umdoni Retirement Village in Pennington (opposite Selborne) has been fortunate enough to net a truly outstanding show, with internationally acclaimed artistes, celebrating a tribute to this amazing woman.

The Show, entitled “A Nightingale Sang”, will be on Sunday, June 11.

This will be one of Umdoni’s very popular late afternoon shows and, as usual, the audience will be welcomed with a glass of sherry from 3.15pm, with the show starting at 4pm. To this day, people of all ages are familiar with Dame Vera’s warm and beautiful voice.

A voice, some say, that helped to win a war and that brought her the loving title of the Force’s Sweetheart. Featuring the equally beautiful voices and vibrant personalities of Lisa Bobbert and Anthony Stonier, with the brilliant Evan Roberts on piano, “A Nightingale Sang” takes a nostalgic trip down an English country lane, remembering the songs and stories that won the war.

Songs such as “We’ll Meet Again”, “The White Cliffs of Dover”, “We’ll Gather Lilacs”, “There’ll Always Be An England” and, of course, “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square” are just a few of the many featured in this tribute to a British National Treasure.

Tickets are R60 per person for cinema style seating and are on sale on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between the hours of 9 and 11am, only at the RAC Office at the Umdoni Village in Pennington.

Money books your seat. Phone 039-975-9516.
