Fancy something a little different (and a little more retro) than your usual Saturday night? You need to check out the forthcoming Blitz Party in London.
The next available date is Saturday 5th June 2010 (May has already sold out), the location the Village Underground in Shoreditch, where you'll find 40s-style music and dancing, live swing bands, cocktails, Kentish ale plus original newsreels and wartime movies.
The venue will be transformed into a wartime east end air raid shelter complete with sandbags, searchlights and blackout curtains, with rations books replacing bar menus on the night. Dress code, as you would expect, is 40s glam, utility clothing and allied uniform. It kicks off from 8pm, tickets in advance are £15.
