Marston Vale Community Rail Partnership teams up with vintage harmony group The Femmes

A free online concert is available this weekend to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of VJ Day and the end of WW2. Organised by the 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. Stephen Sleight, Marston Vale Community Rail Partnership Officer, said:

“We are delighted to work with The Femmes again – their special VE Day 75th Anniversary concert was a real treat and VJ Day promises to be even better.

“We hope everyone will really enjoy this special concert, and it will revive memories of the 1940s for the older members of our community.

“Our thanks to Bedford to St Albans City Community Rail Partnership & London Northwestern Railway for their help in pulling this fantastic event together.”

The performance is available to view from lunchtime on Thursday 13th August until midnight on Monday 18th August at Femmes VJ75.

Jo Bradley from The Femmes said:

“The Femmes are thrilled to be working alongside Marston Vale Community Rail Partnership again to bring everyone an online concert with delights from the 1940s.

“After the huge success of our online VE Day 75th Anniversary concert, we are excited to delve into the 1940s songbook once more. Expect famous songs from the time, stories from the generation who lived through World War Two and some special guests.”
