Dressing Up for the Golden Days of Vintage Glamour

Fancy something different for the Sunday before Christmas? Read on:-
An event being staged this December in Wolverhampton’s Wulfrun Hall is set to give fans of all things vintage and retro the chance to step back in time. This time, Central Youth Theatre’s second Vintage Glamour Night has a festive twist. 15 piece live jazz band will be playing a mix of classic dancehall, swing and Christmas favourites all night. With magical decorations and glamorous dresses and suits waltzing around the dancefloor, the event is sure to have a real vintage appeal.
Vintage fan and youth theatre member Alice May (17) says, “I am so excited about the Vintage Glamour Night – I love finding beautiful and original clothes in charity shops and vintage boutiques, and I’m fascinated by the old black and white Hollywood glamour! I can’t wait to have my hair done and enjoy the retro atmosphere”.
Event organiser Jane Ward says, “We were overwhelmed by the success of our first Vintage Glamour Night, and we are bringing the night back by popular demand. There is a real vintage movement going on at the moment, for all ages. With our decorations and live band we are creating an atmosphere where people can get dressed up and feel like they are in the golden days of the dancehalls”.
“Whether you are a fan of the music, the fashion or the dancing, we hope that everyone will come and join the party. We are bringing something really unique to Wolverhampton city centre – the perfect way to start your Christmas with a swing!”
Vintage Glamour Night
Wulfrun Hall
Sunday 18th December – 7.30pm
Tickets: £7 (£5 concessions)
In the afternoon, members of the youth theatre are staging a Glamour and Romance event, bringing to life real memories of dancing in Wolverhampton through theatre, an exhibition and a tea dance with a live band. The nostalgic event is designed as a celebration of dancing in the area in the 1940s and 50s. Tickets to the afternoon event (2pm) are just £2 each. It is funded by the BBC Performing Arts Fund.
Cast member Katherine Lea says, “One of the most fun parts of this project has been dressing up in the 1940s clothes and having our hair done. Everyone feels very glamorous. We will all be keeping our hairdos for the dance in the evening!”
