In the mood for a retro night to remember? Don your peep toe shoes and Oxfords for a fabulous 40s dance night, featuring the vintage sounds of sassy singing trio The Bluebirds

Take a seat on one of our themed tables – celebrating everything from iconic 40s stars, like Bette Davis, to historic events, such as the Battle of Britain – for a wartime-inspired dinner and cocktails*.

Khakis, tea dresses and zoot suits are positively encouraged – and don’t forget to pin up those curls (you too ladies). The most iconic look will win a pair of tickets for our Halloween Late!

*Free glass of punch on arrival. Extra charge for all other cocktails.
