Forties fun in Chesterfield

Have your say

A SWING jive dance, vintage market and live re-enactments will form part of Chesterfield’s blitz weekend celebrations next month.

The third annual 1940s event will include a parade of vintage cars and wartime equipment, screenings of classic films and a 40s party in the Winding Wheel ballroom, kitted out as an air-raid shelter.

Chesterfield Coun Amanda Serjeant said: “The 1940s is a period remembered with nostalgia by many.”

The event is from Friday to Sunday, March 1 to 3.
