As part of our Mid-Century & Vintage Festival running throughout the weekend, we’re hosting a not-to-be-missed American wartime evening with the toe-tapping, jive-jumping Company B.
We’re going back in time to when the hotel was an RAF wartime hospital. It’s the end of the war and the American RAF band are here to celebrate with the locals!
This is an opportunity to put on your best vintage finery, put in the rollers and practice those eye flicks. After a fun afternoon of vintage shopping to get you in the mood, enjoy a little warm-up music and head to the cocktail bar for a cocktail demonstration. Then head over to the marquee where your non-stop evening awaits. Enjoy a welcome drink and a sit-down 1940s-themed buffet before the music and jive dancing really begins! Our staff will be in character too, so we can all really get in to the swing of things!
Company B are a jump jive band from Cornwall who have built their reputation as one of the most entertaining acts in the South West playing the songs of Louis Prima and others as well as their own originals. So get your vintage frocks on and get ready for a fantastic night of music and jive dancing.
Tickets are £49 per person and include:
- An Evening with Company B
- Arrival drink
- Vintage-themed sit down buffet
There will also be a chance for 1940s hair and make-up before the evening begins!
