A major national entertainment charity has chosen to hold its official launch at a popular Oswestry venue.

Born during lockdown, the ENSA Memorial Appeal which has its offices on the out skirts of Shrewsbury will be officially launched with a star studded Gala Dinner at the Lion Quays Hotel on Friday 22nd October 2021.

The appeal is to raise funds to commission a memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum near Lichfield to honour those men and women of the show-business industry who did so much to boost morale during World War 2 both at home and on the front line as part of ENSA, Stars in Battledress, RAF Gang Shows and similar organisations.

Tickets for the black tie event can be purchased from https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/160807709187

Further details about the charity can be found on its website www.ensamemorialappeal.co.uk and its social media sites – Facebook and Twitter.
