1940’s Blitz Party with Barry Sapsford Swing Orchestra
Jive the night away to live music provided by Barry’s 14-piece swing orchestra, as you immerse yourself in classic 1940’s WW2 nostalgia. Enjoy a classic Pop Up Bar beverage, whilst listening to your favourite WW2 radio hits originating from swing era stars such as Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Woody Herman. Instrumental numbers as well as standards sung by Barry’s lead band vocalist. Vintage attire greatly encouraged and appreciated but not mandatory. Come and share this experience with contemporaries and new friends who appreciate the lasting appeal of these historic songs featured in movies, on radio and your great-nan’s desert island discs. All ages and dancers of all abilities are welcome. Lead Dancers will be on hand to provide reminders and demonstrations of basic steps so everyone can join in.
The event is on the first floor of the Southern Maltings building. Please check with the event organisers if using stairs is problematic.
Southern Maltings is a not for profit organisation run by volunteers. All proceeds from our events go towards developing the Southern Maltings into an amazing creative arts centre which will enable us to put on a wider and more frequent range of events and activities for the whole community.
