Peterborough Arena is set to host a 1940’s Hanger Dance this coming October!

Peterborough Arena is hosting a lively vintage themed hanger dance, ‘The Big 40s Night Out’ this autumn, and tickets are flying out of the building like hotcakes on a hot tin roof!


Sophistication, glamour and music of a bygone era will be the name of the game at this event, and as such vintage dress is highly encouraged! There’ll be a prize for the best dressed male and best dressed female of the night.

There will also be a dance demonstration, and a dance taster class from Cambridgeshire based lindy hop group Rug-Cutters to enable absolute beginners to learn some basic moves, so the evening is geared at dancers of all abilities, whether you already know some lindy hop, ballroom or jive, or whether you are an absolute novice!

Martin Bird photography will be on site with a 1940s vintage photobooth to capture everyone in their vintage outfits too.

The event will be supporting charity Scotty’s Little Soldiers,with a portion of the ticket price, and charity raffle and auction which will be held on the night. Scotty’s is a charity which supports children who have lost a parent in the armed forces, and it’s a lovely charity to support because it does sterling work to change lives for the better.

Admission will be via ticket only, the price of which includes a Ration Book, entitling you to a Hog Roast and a free drink from the bar.

Tickets are £27 for adults, and £12 for children (5 – 16) and are on sale now with See Tickets from this link: www.seetickets.com/event/the-big-40s-night-out/east-of-england-showground/900821
