THEY brought 1940s nostalgia and patriotism to our living rooms with their performances on Britain’s Got Talent this summer and will now be doing the same at St Stephen’s Church.

The D-Day Darlings are a three-piece all-female vocal group who perform classic songs from the 1930s and 1940s, along with other patriotic anthems.

They were formed in 2008 as a trio by leader Katie Ashby, whose 95-year-old step-grandfather Clifford Storr was an RAF navigator on Lancaster bombers during the Second World War.

Since then they have performed all over the country, notably at The Imperial War Museum, The Black Country Museum, at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, and The Royal British Legion's Festival of Remembrance.

In fact, The Darlings are registered fundraisers for the Royal British Legion, stating on their website that they are “proud to have raised £40,000” for the legion to date.

When asked to perform at the final Church on the Green concert for the 2018 season they agreed without hesitation.

A spokesman said: “We are delighted that the D-Day Darlings will be performing live in our beautiful building.

“Bringing local talents and the community together is very important to us and this is a perfect end to what has been a successful and well received first season for Church on the Green and which has introduced people to our church and our town."

The show is on this Saturday, October 6.

Tickets for the concert are £10 each and available from The Word Christian Bookshop at St Stephen’s Church, The Music Shop in Kingfisher Centre or by contacting the ticket enquiry line on 07484 641016.

Redditch’s own 37th Signal Regiment will be escorting the D-Day Darlings to the St Stephen’s Church stage.

Redditch Royal British Legion will also be attending the event providing the audience with an opportunity to support the 2018 Poppy Appeal.
