Taking place in the glorious Clevedon Community Centre with it’s vaulted dance floor and more Blitz spirit than Churchill’s bunker, this night will recreate the post wartime celebrations and glamour of 1940’s Bristol. All of you fabulous victory curled ladies and uniformed soldiers can expect a wonderful night of live music from The Thornbury Swing Band, and other 40’s-style revelry.
