We spent Saturday night taking a step back in time to the 40s at the Blitz Party. The organisers had done up a venue in the arches under a railway line in East London to look like an air raid shelter complete with sandbags and the night is meant to evoke the spirit of the Blitz with swing music and silent re-runs of black and white war movies projected onto the walls. The evening kicked off with Fitzrovia Radio who recreate 40s radio plays to great comic effect and then progressed to live big band music and swing DJs. All the party goers had made a tremendous effort with guys in uniform and gals in tea dresses with rolled hair. Mr Crafty and I enjoyed getting dolled up in our best utility wear:
(Terrible photo quality I know - my phone's "night mode" was tested by the low level lighting in the "shelter")
All in all it was a spiffing evening and my new resolution is to learn swing dance as I was green with envy watching the seasoned dancers strut their stuff.
