With a special commemoration to the artistes from both WW1 and WW2. This show has been wowing audiences. Now with the success of the new blockbuster DAD'S ARMY film being in February 2016, this show brings in many sketches featuring recreations of many of the cast from the evergreen show. Dad's Army remains one of the most popular situation comedies on British television. It ran for eighty episodes over nine years and a feature film, radio series and West End stage production were also commissioned. Sadly most of the cast are now no longer with us and are sorely missed by the British public. Now we bring to life some of the best loved Characters of DAD'S ARMY in this very special matinee show loving recreated on stage.
