Swingdance UK will be bringing the 1940s to the the National Army Museum with a World War II-themed swing dance.

You'll learn some popular wartime dances like the Jive and Lindy Hop before jumping on the dance floor to show off your new moves.

In-between the South London Jazz Orchestra's sets there will be a swing DJ and plenty of cabaret entertainment to keep you on your toes.

Of course you'll have to look the part as well, so there will be some expert hair and makeup artists on hand to turn you into a 1940's guy or gal. You'll then be able to pick up some props and strike a pose at the photo booth to create a perfect memento of your evening.
