Everyone loves a bit of nostalgia and 'blitz' parties have really become popular in recent years, with the really big events held regularly in London. The chaps at Hanger 39 in Colchester organised one such event last month at the historic Town Hall; it was a fantastic evening, complete with air raid sirens, wartime newsreels and even a guest 'appearance' by Winston Churchill. I was there with Janine from Lesley's Girls Vintage, armed with only my camera and a dodgy vintage jumper. Below are a selection of photos from the evening, taken in between air raids and emergency dashes to the bar.
Music was provided by the talented Miss Kitty Collins, which gave the night a really authentic feel, and as you can see, people really got into the mood with some really impressive dancing.
Here's hoping there are more of these events to come as it was a really fun evening in aid of Help for Heroes.
