SSAFA Presents The Brompton & Invicta Military Wives Choir & Guests
The Kent Branch of SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, are holding a wonderful, not to be missed, evening of music, emotion and reflection.
The Brompton and Invicta Military Wives Choir are pleased to be working with SSAFA to raise vital funds for the military community. The Choir, which was formed in 2013 have had the pleasure to sing at a variety of places including The Royal Albert Hall, at the first Invictus Games, Carnegie Hall in New York, Menin Gate in Belgium for the Last Post Ceremony, and supported Lulu on her 2016 tour. They also love to support their local military connections and were involved with the recording of the 2018 Military Wives Choir’s album “Remember”. They are looking forward to singing some of these songs at Rochester Cathedral and supporting SSAFA.
The Choir are also very fortunate to be joined by the following:
Swingtime Sweethearts This lovely duo have performed at a number of places including St James Palace, Buckingham Palace, Blenheim Palace, Goodwood Revival, and appeared in Dame Vera Lynn’s 100th Birthday Concert at the London Palladium. They have a wide range of songs from the 1940’s, wartime and swing, includes the hits of Vera Lynn, Anne Shelton, Gracie Fields and Glenn Miller. They are delighted to be able to share some of these songs with you.
