40s & 50s Vulcan Hangar Dance

London Southend Airport
7.30 pm to 10.30 pm

Our 1940s & ’50s Vulcan Hangar Dance is back for 2022 with the Sid Bolan Big Band returning to entertain you.

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.

The 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 need a brush-up, 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 warm as aircraft hangars aren’t the hottest 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.

Full refunds will be made on all ticket purchases if for any reason the event does not go ahead.

Tickets are £19.00 with a reduced rate of £16.00 for VRT Members.
