Local performers, The D-Day Darlings who are based in Kingsbury, took the nation by storm singing their way through to the final of ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent.

Their quest is to keep the wartime era alive in the hearts and minds of generations to come. They have raised thousands of pounds for the Royal British Legion, and are continuing their work to raise funds and awareness for RBL and other worthy causes which help our nation’s heroes and their families.

The D-Day Darling’s duo, Katie and Jessica, will be at performing at Mancetter Big Day Out on Sunday 23 September.  The event, which is being organised by North Warwickshire Borough Council and financially supported to the sum of £8,700 by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, is taking place at the recreation ground off Brook Walk from 11am to 3pm. The World War I themed celebration will commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the end of the war and is being supported by various charities and organisations including Veterans Contact Point, Help for Heroes, the Royal British Legion, local cadet forces and 30th Signal Regiment from Gamecock Barracks.

The military theme will be present throughout the event with interactive activities, displays, music, food, stalls, clothing, equipment and vehicles. A military themed dog show will take place alongside free pony and trap rides, camouflage face painting, bouncy castles and an inflatable assault course.

North Warwickshire Borough Council Armed Forces Covenant Champion, Cllr Andy Jenns – pictured with the performing duo, said “The Big Day Out is a great fun way to celebrate the end of World War 1 and the peace which followed, and also of recognising the contribution of serving military personnel and their families today. I am so pleased The D-Day Darlings are able to perform at the event and help us to celebrate this momentous occasion.”
