June Convention 2022

THE GEORGE FORMBY SOCIETY PLATINUM JUBILEE CELEBRATIONS

Summer Convention – June 25th & 26th 2022. In June 2022, her majesty Queen Elizabeth II, arguably George Formby’s most recognisable admirer, will celebrate her Platinum Jubilee. With events set to take place nationwide, the George Formby Society intends to commemorate this special occasion at its Summer Convention.

A FORMBY ROYAL COMMAND PERFORMANCE

Our Saturday evening concert will showcase the best of Formby’s music intertwined with information about the Royal Family’s connection with Wigan’s most famous son, George Formby.

BLACK TIE THEME

In reminiscence of our 2018 Royal Albert Hall performance, we will celebrate the evening in style with a black-tie theme. We ask that anyone who wishes to perform on Saturday evening must support the dress code, but we hope that everyone attending will also join the effort.

AN OPPORTUNITY FOR EVERYONE

To open our special concert, in place of our usual thrash, everyone with a ukulele will be welcome to join the stage and sing ‘When I’m Cleaning Windows’ in its entirety. Not only is this significant song a longstanding favourite of the Royal Family, but it is also the very same song the George Formby Society sang for the Queen at her 92nd birthday celebrations.

RAFFLE AND AUCTION

This unique event will run alongside our usual Saturday evening schedule with a raffle and auction during the interval. Let’s make it an evening to remember! We look forward to seeing you.

CONCERT ORGANISERS

The Saturday evening concert will be organised and presented by Lewis Clifton and Stuart Lowther
