The setting was Pudsey Civic Hall in Leeds. The theme was 1940’s and wow did people make the effort. We borrowed items from Eden Camp in Malton including flags, posters and the loudest Air Raid Siren imaginable.
The Anchor Big Band gave their services for the evening along with Michaela Smith and Jessica Frost as singer and Mr Danny Dance who was our compere for the evening.
The dance floor was packed from the first number and only emptied when we announced Pie n Peas and wartime style dripping butties. The final set of the night was all Glenn Miller numbers rounded off with Jessica giving us a roaring Land of Hope and Glory. The flags were waved and not a dry eye in the house.
