Picture the scene. It’s the East end of London, 1940. Last night’s bombing has left everyone’s favourite local “The Victory Arms” a little bruised, but relatively unscathed.
Joaney, the landlady is getting ready to call last orders whilst the general dogs body and pot man Albert is collecting glasses and chatting to the regulars. To cheer things up before everybody has to head off into the blackout, somebody calls for a song.
Join Joaney and Albert in a right old East End ding dong as they lead their regulars (that’s you!) through the music and stories of the times.
Armed only with a Guitar and a Ukulele they pay tribute to the wartime spirit of the people of the United Kingdom and their allies. Without whom, none of this would have been possible.
The Victory Arms are available for wartime or 1940 themed events. Their entire set features only the authentic songs and stories that were in circulation during the Blitz in 1940.
As one of our regular customers put it “If you get an opportunity to see The Victory Arms perform please take it! It is an act that is both comical, touching and rousing all in one and a real personal highlight.”

2015 Bookings have been coming in thick and fast. The VE Day commemorations in particular have kept us busy! Once that is out of the way then it will be the 75th Anniversary of the Battle Of Britain to keep us on our toes.
This year we have developed a number of sets that are suitable for either the Second World War or indeed the Great War so if you have an event that you would like us to play at then do please get in touch.
As we tend to update our web presence on the move our facebook page is perhaps the best place to find out about what we are up to. You can access it from here.
Finally if after all that, you still can’t quite work out what we are about then this short Video should give you some idea.
