Pure nostalgia: Take a trip down Memory Lane at the Church on the Green

Redditch Editorial 9th May, 2019   0

THE UK’s most popular matinee nostalgia show – Sentimental Journey – is coming to Redditch for a very special performance at The Church on The Green – St Stephen’s Church in the town centre.

It’s on Saturday May 18 at 2.30pm (doors open 2pm) as part of a 50 date nationwide sell-out theatre tour.

Led by Neil Sands who’ll be joined by his West End cast this trip down memory lane will take in The Fabulous 40s, the Rocking 50s, the Swinging 60s and the Sensational 70s.

“It’s a brand new production for 2019 and is guaranteed to have you singing along from start to finish with over 60 of all-time favourite songs, celebrating the 75th anniversary of D Day in a flag waving finale and paying tribute to the veterans of the armed forces,” said Elaine Whitfield from St Stephen’s.

It promises a feel-good afternoon mixed with stunning voices, dazzling costumes and a truly unique atmosphere that will brighten your day.

Tickets are £10 from The Christian Word Bookshop at St Stephen’s, at Vocalize at the back of the Kingfisher, online at www.ticketsource.co.uk/ or call 0333 6663366.

Neil was eight years old when he was given his first guitar and was on stage in his own skiffle band by the time he was nine.

As a teen he was part of the 60s beat boom, but it was to be as a television wrestling star that he first found national recognition, leading to many appearances on TV’s World of Sport.

On retiring from the ring Neil got back into singing, performing summer seasons with stars like Bob Monkhouse, Mike Read and Larry Grayson.

He has appeared in films with Richard Burton, John Cleese, and Richard Harris and he even taught his Royal Highness Prince Edward to wrestle.
