Alexander Armstrong to appear in Dame Vera Lynn's 100th Birthday Concert

Renowned wartime singer Dame Vera Lynn will reach her 100th birthday in March this year. To celebrate this milestone for Dame Vera, known as the Forces' Sweetheart during World War 2 for her uplifting performances of songs like We'll Meet Again, she will be holding a charity concert showcasing some of the best in British talent.

The concert, on the 18th of March at the London Palladium, is in aid of The Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity and will feature over 25 of the country’s most beloved singers, dancers, actors, West End stars and TV personalities. Accompaniment will be provided by the revered Royal Air Force Dance Orchestra, The Squadronaires, a very fitting tribute to Mr Harry Lewis, Dame Vera Lynn’s husband, who was a founding member.

Among those performing are Alexander Armstrong, Blake, and Hayley Westenra. Other acts will be announced over the weeks to come, but a once in a lifetime experience is promised. Tickets are available online.
