Do you fondly remember the time when songs had words you could sing along to? When it took five minutes to warm up the telly, and you never had to lock your front door?

Do you fondly remember the time when songs had words you could sing along to? When it took five minutes to warm up the telly, and you never had to lock your front door?

Well, if you do, there is just the perfect entertainment lined up for you when one of the country's most popular nostalgia shows, Remember When, appears at Seaton Town Hall.

Now in it's second year of touring and with a brand new show for 2008, it promises a wonderful feel-good afternoon guaranteed to get you smiling and singing. It features many magical musical memories from the '40s, '50s and early '60s.

With a whole host of songs made famous by the likes of Doris Day, Bing Crosby, Julie Andrews, Max Bygraves, Vera Lynn, Frank Sinatra and many more, it is a show to savour.

It is produced and hosted by Neil Sands, the former British heavyweight wrestling star, who is better known to theatre audiences for his country music show Nashville Nights and Dixie Days. With his warm stage presence, great voice and fun personality, he ensures that the music mixes with humour and nostalgia, making it a show which will warm everyone's hearts.

He will be joined in the show by two talented young women who have both graced the West End stage. Gemma Turner is very much in the mould of Katherine Jenkins, and Lauren Atkins recently won the Voice of Hertfordshire contest. They both have outstanding voices, and great personalities.

With some wonderfully choreographed routines, stunning costumes and with many older people feeling less than comfortable going out in the evenings, this show really does offer a wonderful afternoon of music, memories, nostalgia and good old fashioned fun.

Remember When will be staged on Thursday, July 3, at 2pm.

Tickets, costing £9, with a group discount of buy 10 get 1 free available, can be bought at Seaton Tourist Information Office, call (01297) 21660.
