40s & 50s Vulcan Hangar Dance

London Southend Airport
7.30 pm to 10.30 pm

The Sid Bolan Big Band is back for another exciting evening at our ’40s & ’50s Vulcan Hangar Dance.

The dance will take place in the Vulcan Restoration Trust’s hangar at London Southend Airport, known as Royal Air Force Rochford during the Second World War.

You can dance the night away beneath Vulcan XL426’s giant delta wings. Sid Bolan’s 18-piece band will be playing a selection of dance hits from the wartime and post-war years. If you’re a beginner, or your dancing skills are in need of a refresh, the Air Raid Jive Dance School will start the evening with a 30 minute fun ‘tutorial’ so everyone can hone their dance moves for the evening to come!

The hangar doors will open at 6.00 pm and the Air Raid Jive Dance School will begin at 7.30 pm. The Sid Bolan Big Band will then join us at 8.00 pm and will play until 10.30 pm.

We encourage everyone attending to dress vintage to give the evening an authentic ’40s and ’50s ‘feel’. But please wrap-up as aircraft hangars aren’t the warmest of places – and it will be October!

There will be a licensed pay bar. Refreshments, including hot and cold food, will be on sale throughout the evening.
