Book your tickets for an evening of swing and jive and a delicious BBQ in the setting of the world's much-loved Bomber Command Centre in Lincoln.

As part of the International Bomber Command Centre's FREE Salute to the 40s weekend, they are running a series of bookable events including the 1940s BBQ & Dance with Johnny Victory.

Put on your dancing shoes as Johnny will be encouraging you to jump up and jive to his swinging sounds. If you’re not a dancer just sit back, relax and enjoy the music as Johnny takes you on a Sentimental journey.

A wide range of displays around the extensive gardens including vintage vehicles and re-enactors will be available to see as part of the weekend's 1940s activities.

All funds raised at events like these are used to deliver the education and community programmes run by the IBCC.
