The Blitz Party D-Day Special 2019

RUN FOR SHELTER!


BOURNE & HOLLINGSWORTH PRESENTS:


D-DAY BLITZ PARTY SPECIAL 2019


Run for cover! The Blitz Party, London’s best-loved and most authentic 1940s party, is back for a spectacular D-Day Special. Step back in time into an authentic air-raid shelter, complete with sandbags, hurricane lamps, reconnaissance maps and blackout curtains. Victory curled ladies and uniformed soldiers can expect a night of live music, classic cocktails and 40s-style revelry.


Live big bands will perform a repertoire of 40s classics and modern favourites remixed to resemble the style of the era, the perfect soundtrack for land girls and the home guard to cut a rug on the dance floor. As with all Bourne & Hollingsworth events, the drinks take centre stage, and the bars will be stocked with a carefully chosen selection of modern takes on classic cocktails all washed down with hearty snacks from the mess stall. Those wishing to hone their swing steps can join the pre-party dance class from 7pm-8pm, led by professional swing dancers who will then set the mood with impressive set-pieces for the rest of the party.


The Blitz Party D-Day Special


Saturday 8th June 2019


Bunker Opens 8pm (entertainment starts at 8.30pm)


Whilst we appreciate the need to “make do and mend” The Blitz Party operates a strict 1940s dress code. Denim may be acceptable in the munitions hall and trainers do squeak nicely in the gymnasium, but that is where they should remain.
