WARTIME songs, vintage clothing and some jitterbug swing will all be part of a 1940s knees-up being held in Carlton later this month.
The Richard Herrod Centre will play host to Another Night to Remember on November 20, which Gedling Borough Council has organised to raise money for the Royal British Legion and a local children’s charity.
Guests attending the event will be treated to a 1940s themed buffet of ration-style classics and are being invited to dress up in 40s style, with prizes on offer for the best dressed.
A live swing band music will be hoping to fill the dancefloor by playing a wide repertoire of 40s classics and giving people the chance to experience real wartime revelry.
The Mayor of Gedling will be at the event to help raise money for We R Here, a Gedling-based charity which supports children, young people and families who have experienced traumatic life events.
Mayor of Gedling, Councillor Meredith Lawrence said: “It’s so important that we support the Royal British Legion with this themed remembrance event, fitting in nicely with the poppy appeal, so sharing the proceeds between them and We R Here was a perfect idea. Everyone attending is in for another night to remember!”
Tickets for this event are only £12 but must be booked in advance. People can contact the Elections & Members’ Services Team at the Civic Centre on 0115 901 3673 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve tickets.
