Midland Film and Art members had the opportunity to audition Anna-Christine Pridden on Friday 5th June at Scary Canary The Venue, High Street, Stourbridge. Members were very pleased with the tear-jerking performance and invited Anna-Christine to sing 'All The Fine Young Men' at the War Era Sing-Along event held at Two Gates Ragged School Chapel on Wednesday 17th June.

The audience were treated to an audio/visual extravaganza mixing animation, slide shows and heritage songs and the regular congregation beforehand decorated the interior and exterior of the chapel in bunting and war memorabilia. Many dressed up in war era attire and waved their flags with joy.
After the refreshment interval Anna-Christine opened the second half of the show. The emotive performance was an highlight of an evening which had great entertainment throughout. Harry Bloomer (a founder member of MFAA) compered the event as part of Cradley Memorials Heritage Trail supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
