Join IOW Tours this October and Go WightAway for a truly special day at The Congress Theatre in Eastbourne, as we invite you to attend The Glenn Miller Orchestra.

Directed by legendary band leader, the phenomenal Ray McVay, The Glenn Miller Orchestra is the UK’s most renowned big band who will swing you back in time playing Glenn Miller’s own arrangements of your favourite wartime chart toppers and hits from the forties. The Glenn Miller Orchestra UK has maintained the exact same line-up on stage devised by Glenn himself, consisting of the leader, five saxophones, four trumpets, four trombones, 3 rhythm, plus a male and female vocalist.

With special guests, The Swing Time Jivers – Don’t Fence Me In – Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen, Begin The Beguine and guest vocalists Mark Porter & Catherine Sykes. The orchestra will perform the second half of the concert in the World War II uniforms of the US Army Air Force, with a poignant special performance, plus a very special tribute to the 75th Anniversary of D-Day.

The beautiful Congress Theatre is a Grade II* listed, purpose built, theatre and conference venue designed by Bryan and Norman Westwood Architects and built in 1963.
