GUESTS at Coombe Abbey Hotel will be urged to keep calm and carry on celebrating as the Bombshell Belles perform for a night of 1940s nostalgia.

The Brinklow based country hotel will be turning back the clock and reviving the frolicking post-war days in the Abbeygate suite tomorrow (February 19).

Crowds will be serenaded with a host of World War II tunes as well as an array of music from other genres by the female vocalists and their live band.

Guests are invited to don their finest 1940s attire as they are taken back to the era with a three-course, wartime-themed, menu – which includes slow cooked beef in Coombe ale and queen of puddings.

Following the Bombshell Belles’ performance, the evening will continue with a DJ taking to the stage to play a stream of hits from the 1940s and onwards.

Ron Terry, general manager of Coombe Abbey Hotel, said the venue is delighted to be hosting the musical military trio once more.

He added: “Last year we hosted the D-Day Darlings – the same performers behind the Bombshell Belles – and they drew a huge crowd who really enjoyed the entertainment.

“Although they perform songs from a bygone era, the Belles sing with infectious energy and style, which means they have a wide appeal and attract fans of all ages.

“The group manage to capture all the magic of the 1940s with great authenticity and panache, so we anticipate their return to Coombe Abbey will be highly popular.”

The trio of songsters will also be returning to the hotel in March for several dates under different guises.

Performing as the Hollywood Starlets on Saturday (March 12), the songstresses will re-create all the glitz and glamour of the 1920s as they sing an mix of popular tunes by the legends of classic Hollywood.

And as their original formation, the D-Day Darlings will return on Sunday (March 13) for a daytime performance in the venue’s grand marquee.

Guests will enjoy afternoon tea as the Darlings entertain with costume changes and songs such as White Cliffs of Dover and There Will Always Be An England.

Ron said: “The D-Day Darlings took guests by storm last year and their show won fantastic reviews so we are really looking forward to welcoming their return for a repeat performance of wartime classics.”

Tickets for the 16-plus Bombshell Belles performance cost £44.95 and can be bought online at www.coombeabbey.com
