Most people think of museums as quiet, sedate locations but for one night this May, as part of a national cultural initiative, The Helicopter Museum is going to literally ‘rock’ that image with an evening of jive dancing and live swing music.
Tickets have gone on sale for a very special ‘Museums At Night’ Charity WWII Hangar Dance at The Helicopter Museum in Weston-super-Mare. The one night only event takes place on Saturday 16th May from 7.30pm to Midnight and features a live performance by ‘The Hot Tin Roofs’.
“During the evening our aircraft hangars will rock to the sounds of WWII era music and American swing, while our guests dance the night away in an authentic aviation hangar setting with real historic aircraft and wartime decoration.” Said Museum Assistant Manager, Neil Burrow “All our volunteers will be dressed up in period costumes ranging from Spitfire Pilots and Land Girls to American G. I’s. There will also be a licensed wine bar serving drinks and refreshments throughout the evening and a complimentary buffet with no fear of wartime rationing!”
Smart dress is requested with period attire optional so if anybody is looking for the opportunity to dress up World War Two style or dust off the old flight jacket or poodle skirt this is the ideal opportunity.
Tickets are £14.00, which includes the evening buffet and can be purchased from The Helicopter Museum on 01934 635227.
The Helicopter Museum is a Registered Charity and houses the World’s largest collection of rotor craft.
