How do you follow a super loud Led Zep act? With a tribute to wartime troops, sweetheart Vera Lynn, of course. After a patriotic introduction from a helmet-wearing ARP, the audience having been handed Union Jack flags on the way in after the interval, the scene was set for Lorrie Brown to get all nostalgic with renditions of White Cliffs of Dover, then We’ll Meet Again. In truth, most audience members would only have a vague memory of what Vera Lynn actually looked like during WWII and this is a speciality tribute with characterisations rather than an accent on absolute accuracy. But, it works well enough to make you feel like digging for victory and breaking out some powdered egg, and it was privilege to be asked by the Agents Association to present this award to Brown and her team.
