Wartime Effort at Royal Victoria Country Park
THE spirit of the Blitz will return this weekend.
The Park and Chapel, in Netley, will return to the heady days of the 1940s as the Blitzville show makes its debut in Hampshire tomorrow.
South coast crooner Jack Sinatra will head up the show with his top-class band plus special guests Tambye Harvey and The Three Belles.
Visitors to the all day and night event will be able to soak up the wartime feel, exploring vehicles and mingling with the characters of the 1940s.
The chapel building will offer dance lessons throughout the day for all those wishing to sharpen up those lindy hop moves.
Costume hire, hairdressing and make-up teams will also be on hand to transform guests into Gable and Garbo, ready for the evening show.
The chapel will then be transformed into a wartime air shelter full of community spirit and the best swing and jive music in Hampshire, with tickets also including a hog roast.
Organisers are encouraging ladies to show off their victory rolls and slip into pencil skirts for a night full of handsome airmen, stiff upper lips, fun, music and nostalgia, and gentlemen to dust off their uniforms, wax those moustaches and shine those shoes.
