IBCC 1940s Blackout Blitz Ball

Aug 12
12th August 2023

Dance till you drop at the IBCC Blackout Blitz Ball with the amazing Kalamazoo Swing Band at their annual 1940s weekend.

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 Blackout Blitz Ball on Saturday evening.

Don your best 40s finery (optional) and learn how to Lindy Hop with the 40s dance team as the Kalamazoo Swing Band play your well-known favourites from the era. You'll also be able to marvel at the vintage car display in the grounds of the IBCC during the event.

Tickets to the Blackout Blitz Ball include a delicious two-course meal, and there is a fully licensed bar available throughout the evening. 

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