Exclusive to Greatdays, Don’t Panic! – A Comedy Tribute to the Home Guard in the style of Dad’s Army!

In World War II, with a German invasion looming, the defence of Walmington-on-Sea rests in the hands of the local bank manager and a motley collection of volunteers in the Home Guard unit. Dad’s Army, despite being woefully ill-equipped, the rag-tag crew is ready to take on invading troops from across the Channel…

“Don’t Panic!” is a variety Dad’s Army tribute show. This light-hearted, sing-along, slapstick comedy show is guaranteed to have your group laughing all the way. Your favourite characters – including Captain Mainwaring – are all there. Along with a musical maestro who provides some stirring renditions of wartime favourites on the piano.
