BrianJ to appear at Upper Caldecote VE Day celebrations.

Villagers in Upper Caldecote are holding VE Day celebrations on Saturday, May 9, with music, dancing and street parties.

The events centre around Caldecote Lower School from 3pm until 7pm with live music from the 1940’s era, and will be held inside if wet weather.

The main attraction is singer BrianJ, who has been entertaining for more than 30 years, swinging from Sinatra to Buble, Matt Monro to Bing Crosby, with a measure of Nat “King” Cole, Glen Miller and Bobby Darin, a pinch of Tony Bennett and Dean Martin.

To mark the 70th anniversary of VE Day, BrianJ will have the perfect recipe for a feast of great tunes as he performs in appropriate period uniform.

The songs may well have been heard during that brief period of rejoicing all those years ago.

Light refreshments will be availabe to buy in a NAAFI stall. Take your own drinks and get in the mood by dressing in 1940’s style costume (optional), including old military costumes. For the children, there is a 1940’s style fancy dress competition.

Tickets are available from the Post Office Stores in Upper Caldecote, priced at £1 for adults, children admitted free.

Everyone welcome but tickets may be limited - so get your tickets now to avoid disappointment.
