12:00pm Saturday 22nd June 2013 in Local
THE Black Country Living Museum in Dudley will be alive with 1940s glamour and the sights and sounds of wartime Britain next month.
The Tipton Road museum is inviting visitors to jive and jitterbug their way to the museum on Saturday July 20 and Sunday July 21 for a nostalgia event to remember.
Sandbags have been filled, windows taped and posters declaring ‘Your Country Needs You’ posted ahead of the event which will include military police checkpoints, ARP Wardens, squaddies, G.I.s, Land Girls, canaries and a cavalcade of military vehicles patrolling the streets.
There will also be songs from the D-Day Darlings and dance lessons to raise the spirit of the Blitz - and visitors can also get a 40s hairdo with a pop up salon in the park.
Marjorie Cartwright-Jones will also be conjuring memories of the war years in her show ‘Marjorie Cartwright-Jones Is All Front’.
The Relive the Fabulous Forties event will run from 10am to 5pm on both July 20 and 21 and there is also an additional event running from 6.30pm to 10pm on Saturday July 20 - for which tickets must be pre-purchased.
Further details and tickets are available online at www.bclm.com/bookings or on 0121 520 8054.
