I Remember You
Remembrance Day at The Ellington Jazz Club
7pm, 11th November 2021

Simone’s Grandfather was just 16 years old when he served in WWI. He didn't speak of his time in the trenches until he was interviewed 70 years later...

From the morale-boosting marches that led a nation to battle, to the tender ballads from the Forces Sweethearts – These were the songs that gathered families around the piano and fortified a generation.

Sharing wartime songs, family lore and verbatim accounts, Simone shares an inspiring true story of survival. In loving remembrance of her Grandfather, Charles ‘Len’ Pooley, and all the brave young soldiers who served in World War One and Two.
