We’ll Meet Again – free Anzac Day concert

Wellington City Council presents We’ll Meet Again, a free Anzac Day concert paying tribute to the servicemen, women, families and workers of World Wars I and II.

Performers include The Beatgirls, accompanied by the Swing Band of the Royal New Zealand Airforce and will feature music from the Andrews Sisters, Glenn Miller, Vera Lynn and more. Guests include singers Ali Harper, Bill Watkin and a line-up of swing dancers.

“We’ve put together a swinging show of music, songs and dance that truly captures the spirit of the era,” says Andrea Saunders of The Beatgirls.

“We’re going to be performing some wonderful war-time songs that still sound terrific today. These are songs that uplifted and comforted both the troops serving overseas and the people at home. There’s going to be a very nostalgic feeling in the Town Hall on Anzac Day.”

Wellington City Council sees We’ll Meet Again as a new way to remind people of the importance of Anzac Day.

“ANZAC Day is a day revered by many New Zealanders and with this concert we’re providing another way for people to remember those who served during the wars,” says City Council Events Co-ordinator Delia Shanly. “We’re expecting a huge response to this concert.”

Entry is by ticket only. Tickets can be obtained by ringing the Council on 499 4444.

We’ll Meet Again, starts 7pm, Friday 25 April at Wellington Town Hall.
