The Victory Marquee

Radio Days variety show

Daytimes in the Victory Marquee will feature non-stop entertainment from 11.30 to 5.30pm. This year bringing together Dance, music, song, comedy, magic and a whole lot more will be the order of the day. Between the 1930s and the 1950s the “wireless” as it was more commonly known became the main source of home entertainment, news and information. It played a major role during the Second World War in keeping our spirits up, giving news about the progress of the War and information to help the British people overcome the difficulties they were enduring. The BBC also aided the propaganda effort by beaming programmes to occupied countries and the heart of Nazi Germany itself.
This year, our talented entertainment team will recall those days in music, dance comedy and song during our 6 hour “Radio Days” variety show under one roof in the victory marquee featuring the following entertainment for all the family.

Jive_Aces_v2

“Legendary swing, jive and skiffle group, The Jive Aces, are renowned worldwide for their high-energy music and spectacular stage show. They are perhaps best known as the first live band to reach the final rounds of “Britain’s Got Talent” and for their award winning viral video,“Bring Me Sunshine”, which has 3 million views online and is so uplifting it’s even been prescribed by a doctor!

This swinging sextet average 300 shows a year and have performed for The Queen, as well as working with Van Morrison and John Travolta. They’ve sold-out the Royal Albert Hall and graced stages in 40 countries, including Buckingham Palace, Glastonbury Festival, The London Olympics and major theatres around the world.

In addition to famously cheering up a grumpy Simon Cowell and wowing the judges on “BGT”, other TV appearances include: “Strictly Come Dancing”, “Children in Need” “Good Day Los Angeles” and “The Alan Titchmarsh Show”.

“Absolutely Brilliant! That really put me in a good mood.” – Simon Cowell

footstompers

The Bettesteiner Footstompers

The Bettesteiner Footstompers are a Bavarian style ‘Oompah’ band from Kent. They formed in 2009 when a group of friends were asked to do a one off special, a German Bierfest evening. The friends said they would but did not take the request too seriously until the organiser contacted them and said that he had sold lots of tickets and reminded them that the event was on in a few days!

Following some hurried rehearsals the performance in fact went down very well and both the band and the audience loved the evening and the Footstompers were born.

The Footstompers is a fun interlude for the players from their more serious brass banding and they are all very active in the brass band contesting world.

The band plays at a whole host of events including beer festivals and private parties all over the South of England. They have played at Margate Winter Gardens, the Leas Cliff Hall in Folkestone, the New Zealand Embassy, Lush Cosmetics, Bierfests galore, regularly play for the Royal Air Force and the British Army and are very popular for turning on Christmas lights!
