Katie formed The D Day Darlings in 2008, with a love of nostalgia and a hugely giving nature, creating a group that remembers fallen heroes and allows thousands of people to relive the memories of an unforgettable era through such beautiful and heartfelt music was the perfect combination.
Katie worked tirelessly, with great dedication and determination, and the group, originally formed as wartime trio, went from strength to strength. With their popularity growing, with young and old alike, and demand for the group becoming greater, more Darlings were signed up to join the growing army of Darlings, to continue their mission to keep the wartime spirit alive and into the new generation.
Katie joined forces with The Royal British Legion and The Darlings became official fundraisers for the RBL, raising thousands of pounds each year to assist the legion in their work and when Dame Vera Lynn gave her endorsement of the groups work, The D-Day Darlings truly became the UK’s most loved sweethearts and their popularity grew even further.
Bringing the true spirit of the wartime era alive, The D-Day Darlings sing the heartfelt harmonies that kept Britain smiling through its darkest times with popular WW2 songs such as We'll Meet Again, I'll Be Seeing You, Land of Hope and Glory, and Bless Em’ All.
Wearing original WRAF uniforms, the delightful darlings can perform against a backdrop of original 1940's film footage, taking the audience on a journey into the heart of an era where troops were being serenaded by the likes of ‘Dame Vera Lynn’, who is an advocate of the show. Also proudly supported by The Royal British Legion, the Forces’ favourite sweethearts do their bit for our nation’s heroes with each performance, having raised almost £40,000 to help the charity so far.
The D-Day Darlings boast a long list of major credits including The Imperial War Museum, The Black Country Museum, The RBL's Festival of Remembrance, Royal Hospital Chelsea and RAF Cosford’s Veterans Parade. Perfect for any military or forties-themed event, they create the atmosphere of wartime Britain with authentic 40s glamour, quality vocals and professionalism.
