About the event

Taking the role of Vera Lynn, Samantha will share the stories and perform the songs of our ‘Forces Sweetheart’.

How did a simple girl from East Ham rise to become the most famous singer of her time?

Relive Dame Vera Lynn’s remarkable story from her early years in working men's clubs through her time with the leading dance bands of the 1930s to her incredible wartime popularity and beyond to the 50s, 60s and 70s.

In this authentic stage biography, Samantha takes the role of Dame Vera recalling the highs and lows of her life.

Samantha beautifully captures Dame Vera's warmth and spirit through fascinating anecdotes covering her life and career, and through the songs that made her famous.

Samantha is Britain's foremost interpreter of Vera Lynn's music and her voice has been praised by The Stage newspaper as "Perfection".

The songs are accompanied on the piano by James Hall, an experienced and talented accompanist and performer in his own right.

Please note, this is not a tribute show, it is an acted and sung biography of Dame Vera's life.

Please note that as part of ongoing improvement works, the lift at the Guildhall Theatre is being replaced. This means that customers with tickets to shows during 10th April to 4th June will be affected - you will have to use the stairs to reach the auditorium. Please speak to the Sales & Information team on 01332 255800 if you think you will be affected.
