Blitz & Bananas – The Premiere!!




As you may recall during the recent features on Anna Littler’s film “Blitz & Bananas”, we brought you news that the premiere was being organised for early 2012. Well, we can now confirm that the premiere will take place on Sunday April 1st at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley. And no, this is not an April Fool’s joke!

Don’t just take our word for it – check out this advertisement in the current Bromley Arts Council Events Schedule for 2012:

The film starts at 2.30pm, however we are also organising a Wartime Experience! (Details below.) So guests can come from 1.30 pm to join in the 1940s fun!  Come in vintage clothing or your party dress!

TICKETS  – Buy and Sell!
Tickets are available from the Churchill theatre but please note they charge a booking fee per ticket, plus transaction fee IF you book on their website or by phone, but there are no fees if you go to the booking office.

However, we can also sell as many tickets as we want – without booking fees!
Our plan is to give small batches of tickets to individuals to sell to their family and friends etc.

So if you would be willing to take 10 or 20 etc. to try to sell (or any number large or small!), that would be really useful and it will save your friends paying the extra fees! As the seats are numbered, it’s to your advantage to buy early to get good seats!

Let me know your thoughts or requirements by email and we’ll make arrangements.  You don’t need to pay for them upfront – we will keep a record and payment can be made later. We’ll provide an info sheet to ticket sellers so that they have all the info needed.

Also I know that some of you have spent many days helping and/or have large families involved, so please do not feel embarrassed to email me if you would prefer a free ticket.



Tickets are: Adults £10.  Child (U16) £5.

Family tickets: 2 adults & 2 children (£26)

Group deal – buy 10 tickets and the 11th is free.


We plan to have vintage cars, sets, costumes and props with us and hopefully some surprises – to make the afternoon an educational wartime experience for the young – or a trip down memory lane for the young at heart! 

*STOP PRESS* Due to overwhelming demand for tickets, there will be a second screening for the film to start at 5:30pm! More news to follow soon!

Anna can be contacted via e-mail at or or by telephone on 01689 862 825. And of course OVFM club members can always grab Anna at our weekly club meetings. Further details on the project can be found on the official website HERE.

This promises to be a big event for Anna, OVFM and everyone who took part in this project so show your support,tell your friends and family and get your tickets quick before they are sold out!

  1. This film will show young people what it was like to live through the Blitz and it will bring a touch of nostalgia to those of us who were there.
    Anna has gone to great lenghts to get the costumes and the vehicles authentic and even our language was different (to be ‘cool’ was to be a bit chilly). So this film will entertain and educate young and old alike. A film that the whole family will enjoy.

  2. I’d also like to buy a copy of “The Day the children waved goodbye” which OVFM made in 2001. My mum was an evacuee & is in this. I have the video but no video player! Now my grandchildren would like to take it to school as part of their WW2 studies.
    Hope you can help
