A free online concert is available this weekend to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of VJ Day and the end of WW2. Organised by Marston Vale Community Rail Partnership, vintage harmony group The Femmes have recorded a special performance with special guests, to remember the day World War Two officially ended, and with a look forward to happier times ahead.
Oozing with Golden Age Hollywood Glamour, this trio of starlets whisk the glory of the 1940s to today. With more fizz than a glass of champagne, these gals will get you singing along and your toes tapping!
The concert has been funded by Marston Vale Community Rail Partnership & Community Rail Network.Read More
