The box office is now officially up and running for two major events – The Spirit of Blitz Show and Blitz Ball which are part of the forthcoming Welshpool 1940s Weekend from September 30 to October 2.

The Spirit of the Blitz variety show will take place in the Town Hall on September 30 at 2pm. Celebrating the best of British wartime entertainment, the show pays tribute to the legendary stars who kept us smiling through our darkest days.

It recaptures the patriotic optimism of war-torn Britain with sing along to swinging hits like Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree, Bless 'Em All, Leaning On A Lamp-Post, and of course, We'll Meet Again. 

Starring Andy Eastwood, Maggie O’Hara and Pete Lindup, this feel-good show recreates all the forties favourites, including Vera Lynn, George Formby, Max Miller, Bing Crosby, Anne Shelton and Gracie Fields.

The Blitz Ball will take place on October 1, again in the Town Hall, and will feature the Ashby Little Big Band with guest vocalist Katie Mustang. There will also be 1940s dance tuition. The Band is an eight-piece band consisting of Saxes, Brass and Rhythm playing everything a full Swing Orchestra can.

Tickets for both events are available from the Theatre Hafren box office or on line at
