Head back to the 1940s with Blitzville at the Royal Victoria Country Park
7:00am Friday 28th February 2014 in Leisure News
THE 1940s Blitzville Show makes its debut in Hampshire in March.
Crooner ‘Jack Sinatra’ will head the line-up at the Royal Victoria Country Park in Netley on Saturday, March 15, joined by special guests Tambye Harvey and The Three Belles.
Ladies, show off your victory rolls and slip into your pencil skirts for a night full of handsome airmen, stiff upper lips, fun, music and nostalgia, and gentlemen dust off your uniforms, wax those moustaches and shine those shoes!
The all day and night affair has a little something for all. Visitors to the park will be able to soak up the war time ambiance of the 1940s by exploring vehicles and mingling with characters.
In addition, the chapel building will offer dance lessons throughout the day for all those wishing to sharpen up those Lindy Hop moves.
Costume hire, hairdressing and make up teams will also be on site to assist in the transformation of individuals in readiness for the evening show.
For the evening, the beautiful Chapel Building will be transformed into a wartime air shelter full of community spirit and the best swing and jive music.
Entrance is free to the public for the day event with normal car parking fees applicable.
Evening tickets can be purchased online at JackSinatra.com or by calling RedBoxed Promotions on 02380 434311.
