Join us for a very special evening of fabulous nostalgia and hilarity on Saturday 18th November. The mood and events of the 1950s and 60s are revisited with the songs of Flanders & Swann. This event is a fundraiser for Honiton Dementia Action Alliance and is sponsored by The Beehive so come and support this worthy cause. It’s optional, but why not wear your glad rags evening dress for the occasion? A complimentary glass of fizz will be served on your arrival.
Flanders and Swann were a well-known British comedy duo. Actor and singer Michael Flanders and composer, pianist, and lyricist Donald Swann collaborated in writing and performing comic songs. They first worked together at a school revue in 1939 and eventually wrote over a hundred comic songs together. Between 1956 and ‘67, Flanders and Swann performed some of their songs, interspersed with comic monologues, in their long-running two-man revues ‘At the Drop of a Hat’ and ‘At the Drop of Another Hat’ which they toured in Britain and abroad. Both revues were recorded in concert and the duo also made several studio-based recordings.
Two Blokes and a Piano, acknowledged as leading exponents of Flanders & Swann, bring you such favourites as The Hippopotamus Song, The London Omnibus, The Gnu and many others. With additional songs by Stilgoe and Skellern plus Kit and the Widow.
Honiton has identified a real need and is working towards raising £150K for its own Admiral Nurse. These dementia specialist nurses recruited, trained and supported by Dementia UK are called “Admiral Nurses” a name coined by the family who first set the charity up following the experience they went through with a close family member who was known as “Admiral Joe” due to his love of sailing. Admiral Nurses are highly skilled registered nurses who have specialised in dementia care. Their unique background and experience enable Admiral Nurses to work together with families and complimentary to local health and social care services. Please support the cause by joining us for this fabulous show and have a great evening too. Tickets are only £10 each.
