Wartime theme

If you think you’d enjoy an evening of wartime nostalgia, or if you are just looking for a night of fantastic entertainment, then you’re sure to enjoy a 1940s-themed Big Band Swing Night of music and dancing in Buxton’s iconic Dome.

Events organisers ‘Meet Me At The Dome’ are urging people to reserve tickets early for what is sure to be a popular event on Friday November 25, from 7.30pm until late.

Eighteen-piece Ockbrook Big Band will provide a fabulous 40s soundtrack to a night on the dance floor, playing classics numbers from Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Cole Porter, Duke Ellington and Artie Shaw.

And one of the UK’s most successful wartime nostalgia singers, Erin Parker, will perform classics from Vera Lynn and the Andrews Sisters in the true style of the era.

Tara Silverman, Meet Me At The Dome Event Organiser, said: “We hope this one-off 1940s-themed event will attract people from across Buxton, the High Peak and even further afield.

“We’re even encouraging guests to get dressed up in classic clothes from the era, so when they step through the doors of Buxton’s Dome it’ll really feel as though we’ve turned back time.”

Tickets cost £15 for adults and £7.50 for children and senior citizens, and can be purchased at the Dome reception, on Devonshire Road, by calling 01332 594606, or at www.derby.ac.uk/udb/at-the-dome/1940s-night.

Drinks can be purchased from a fully licensed bar on the night.
