Thank you some good ones there. It is hard though to get a balance of stars, you can appreciate the job they have.

Rose That is a good thought. Webster Booth and Anna Ziegler could be revived by The Proclaimers, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers by Ashleigh and Pudsey. Gracie Fields by Charlotte Church.

Mind is now racing with ideas :-D

Ann, I've been trying to think ( lol) but not come up with anything as yet, however I went to google to see what performers were in their 'heyday' when the Queen was young ...thinking along the lines of that we all have favourites from our youth and a 'revival' of some of those acts by younger artistes might be nice ( for example I remember my mum saying she and a friend went to see Jack Buchanan and Jessie Matthews when they were in their late teens I believe).

In googling I came across quite by chance this very interesting site about where I was born :-) so thankyou!


JustJohn Report 5 Dec 2012 18:40


Lord Attenborough, more titles than HRH
James Davidson, OBE


Wyn Calvin, MBE (panto dame)

Dame Vera Lynn (acrobat)
Petula Clark. CBE (still very nice)

Is that enough, Ann? Programme shaping up well, I think :-D


AnninGlos Report 5 Dec 2012 17:35

OK John, then come up with a programme.


JustJohn Report 5 Dec 2012 17:24

This performance is for the benefit of HM, not the public.

So I hope HM will read these ideas and comment herself.

I would have thought that her favourites would be entertainers she has given high honours to.

Dame Shirley, Sir Brucie, Lord Dickie, Dame Vera, Prince Philip, Sir Gary Barlow........ :-D ;-)
