KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON DANCING

Date: 13 October 2018

The Royal Air Force Museum Cosford will be turning back the clocks to an era
of Big Bands, Jive Bunnies and Jitter-buggers for a Wartime Hangar Dance
taking place nestled amongst a collection of aircraft, on Saturday 13
October.

The Museum’s Hangar 1 will be transformed into a 1940s ballroom, when the
energetic dances and infectious big band sounds brought a glimmer of joy to
the dark days of wartime. Guests are encouraged to dress to impress by
donning their best vintage outfits and wartime costume for the evening and
dance the night away with music courtesy of Paul Drakeley and his All Stars
Band and Singers. Musical accompaniment will include Big Band favourites
such as Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw and Frank Sinatra.

This nostalgic event is organised by the Aerospace Museum Society, a group
whose members volunteer for the RAF Museum Cosford and assist with a variety
roles including; conservation work, maintaining exhibits, assisting with
public events, school groups and guided tours, as well as actively
fundraising for the Museum for over 40 years.

Doors to the dance will open at 7pm with dancing starting at 8pm. In a true
wartime fashion guests are encouraged to bring along picnics and their
favorite tipple to enjoy in the street party atmosphere before taking to the
dancefloor! Guests will also be given the chance to win some great prizes
courtesy of a raffle.

Suitable for all ages, tickets are now on sale and cost £25 per person.
