With their debut album riding high in the charts, The D-Day Darlings are busy rehearsing for a concert in London – where they will be supported by some very special guests.
The D-Day Darlings have had a long association with The Taxi Charity for Military Veterans and are delighted that a group of amazing veterans will be joining them at the Union Chapel, Islington, on 1 March 2019.
Katie Ashby, founder and lead singer of The D-Day Darlings, said: "We are overwhelmed by the support we have received since appearing on Britain’s Got Talent last year and we could never have imagined we would have a successful album and be planning our debut concert. We could ask for no better guests to join us at the concert than the amazing veterans from the Taxi Charity."
Dick Goodwin, Vice President of the Taxi Charity said: "The Taxi Charity veterans love watching The D-Day Darlings perform and anyone lucky enough to get tickets for the show will I’m sure be moved when the girls are joined on stage by some of our WWII veterans for the finale."
Tickets are available from Ticketmaster.

About the Taxi Charity
The Taxi Charity for Military Veterans was formed in Fulham in 1948, to work for the benefit, comfort and enjoyment of military veterans. The charity arranges many trips every year for veterans from all conflicts, offering international trips to Holland, Belgium and France, UK day trips to concerts or museums, transport to attend fundraising events, as well as special days out to catch up with friends and comrades. To fund and facilitate these outings, the charity is wholly reliant on generous donations from members of the public, businesses and trusts and the amazing group of London licensed taxi drivers who offer their time and vehicles free.
