Brought to life by the unmissable Great Singalong Songbook team, whose unique shows are selling out theatres across the country, this delicious programme is jam-packed with nostalgic hits like We’ll Meet Again, Among My Souvenirs, Auf Wiederseh’n Sweetheart, The White Cliffs of Dover, Lili Marlene, and many more.

With a giant screen, video clips and photos, there will be no excuse not to join in as even the lyrics will be projected! So, audiences are advised to dust off those vocal cords, as they will be called upon to sing.

It stars Linda Kenny (soprano), Damian Smith (baritone), actor Alf McCarthy, and the Great Singalong Songbook band (Musical Director Alan Carney). The show is written and directed by Cathal MacCabe.

Soprano Linda Kenny said, “The show pulls at the heartstrings, particularly when you have her gorgeous music to sing along to too. We use a giant screen with video and photos, and we also project the lyrics so the audience can sing along with us. It is genuinely one of the nicest Sunday afternoons you could imagine.

The Great Singalong Songbook team has been doing shows in The Everyman theatre for the past 19 years and only decided to take them out on the road in 2018. They have enjoyed great successes all over the country with their celebrations of movie and musical icons where they delve into their life stories and sing their beautiful music.

The most popular element of the shows is that the audience also gets to join in with the band/singers. Looking forward to welcoming everyone on November 6.
