To help with the awareness of the event and to remember those fallen heroes we are promoting the musical track called 'Reverie' composed by Robby Toner (https://www.facebook.com/pg/robbytonermusic) who's given LVF the permission to use the track as its theme tune for the event. We are very honoured to be able to use this such amazing and relevant song, Thank you Robby.
This 1940’s themed event is being held in Lee on the Solent, Hampshire, a village by the sea overlooking the Solent thus giving the event a coastal backdrop. The event will be held in various areas including the High Street, Recreation Ground, Seafront and Church across the weekend.
