Prepare to be wowed by Bourne & Hollingsworth attention to detail. With ration books in place of menus, reproduction 40s posters, jam jars and enamel mugs replacing classic glass-wear, and all manner of authentic Blitz-era displays, guests will find themselves transported to a time when life was precious, friendships fleeting and community spirit ruled the day. 

Live big bands will perform a repertoire of 40s classics and modern favourites remixed to resemble the style of the era, the perfect soundtrack for land girls and the home guard to cut a rug on the dance floor. 

Those wishing to perfect their swing steps can join the pre-party dance class from 7pm-8pm, led by professional swing dancers who will then set the mood with impressive set-pieces for the rest of the party. 

The bars will be stocked with a carefully chosen selection of modern takes on classic cocktails, Champagne and spirit mixers, all washed down with hearty homemade snacks from the mess stall.

Could it have been this much fun back in the 1940s?

The dress code is 1940s glamour, home front utility wear and allied uniform.
