We sang songs, had tea and cake and Dame Vera showed us her photo album and shared some amazing memories. It was a truly wonderful afternoon.

What people are saying ...

Can I just thank all of you for giving my father such a wonderful and utterly memorable birthday treat. Your performance was astonishing and moving. You are all such brilliant singers, and work together SO well as a quartet. Your capacity for surprise is also amazing, and your evident love of the material shines out in the freshness with which you present it.

Putting on the Blitz's beautiful rendition of ‘I’ll Be Seeing You’ brought tears to my eyes, as my mother often used to sing it.  Happy memories! The singers’ evident enjoyment made them such a pleasure to watch and listen to.
