1940s day is back again

We're getting jittery, no pun intended, for The Festival Swing Dance Society and our other 1940s friends coming back to the museum. Normally we hold our annual event on Armed Forces Day, but thought we'd try and host one this year! 

25th September 11am-3pm. Free entry. 

We're planning on listening to nostalgic songs from the swing-time era with the amazing Annie Andrews. There will be loads of vintage vehicles, great artefacts and replicas from our Home Front heroes. There's a display of knitted comforts for troops too! Take your chance to buy some vintage fashions and browse vintage displays. Although it is great fun getting into the 40s spirit, we also like to think about the hardships those people endured and pay our respects. At 3pm the Royal British Legion of Long Eaton and Ilkeston will lead us in a remembrance ceremony in the museum garden. I hope you'll come on down- I'm already polishing my dancing brogues.
