A singalong featuring hits from the 1940s has been moved online due to coronavirus restrictions.

Sheringham Little Theatre usually hosts a singing session during the annual 1940s weekend in Sheringham and Holt – which would have taken place this coming weekend.

Instead of a “live” event this year, performers Katie Thompson, Harry Williams and Daisy Winchester will perform at the theatre’s Hub café on Friday, September 18, from 7.30pm. People will be able to watch live online via Zoom, tickets are £5.

Debbie Thompson, theatre director, said: “Everyone loves the 40s singalong, but we cannot hold it in the theatre during Covid restrictions, so in true Dunkirk spirit we have found a way to soldier on so people can still enjoy an hour of nostalgic music and sing their hearts out safely at home.”
