Wednesday 1st April 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of the formation of TML Travel Group Limited and we feel it is important to mark milestones, which is precisely why we want to mark our 10th anniversary and we want ALL our clients to be part of this very important event. Because without you, the business would not be the success it is.
To mark this milestone, we are offering a special three day Anniversary break staying at the Northampton Marriott Hotel between Thursday 2nd - Saturday 4th April 2020. The break culminates in a special Anniversary Gala Dinner and an exclusive concert performance by three of The D-Day Darlings, finalists in the 2018 edition of Britain’s Got Talent & Britain’s Premier Wartime Singing Troupe.
We have seen The D-Day Darlings perform at various 1940’s themed events and visitor attractions in recent years. Since finding fame on Britain’s Got Talent, they have gone on to release a debut album, which has sold over 60,000 copies since its launch in November 2018! This success has earned them the BRIT Certified Breakthrough Album Award.
Thank you for travelling with us over the years & we very much look forward to celebrating this milestone with you!
The D-Day Darlings are Britain’s Premier Wartime Singing Troupe. They were finalists in the 2018 edition of Britain’s Got Talent and since then they have gone on to release a debut album - ‘I’ll Remember You’. Since its launch in November 2018, their album has sold over 60,000 copies! This success has earned them the BRIT Certified Breakthrough Album Award.
The group was formed in 2008 by founder and lead singer Katie Ashby after Katie recognised the importance of this music and how it resonates with people like no other genre of music. Katie says, “To see how these songs affect people and how the melody and lyrics evoke such memories was truly eyeopening for me, and it was this that made me want to build a career singing these timeless songs and bring back memories for so many people” .
The Darlings, originally formed as a trio, became an overnight success and the group’s popularity grew with young and old alike, so more Darlings were signed up to join the group, creating an army of girls to continue their mission of keeping the wartime spirit alive and into the new generation.
Katie joined forces with The Royal British Legion becoming official fundraisers for the RBL, raising thousands of pounds each year and when Dame Vera Lynn gave her endorsement of the group's work, The D-Day Darlings truly became the UK’s most loved sweethearts and their popularity has grown even further. They are now also Ambassadors for The Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity.
