A stylish 40s salute

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - MY KENT FAMILY -

Want to travel back in time to the 1940s? Vin­tage hair­styles and fash­ions, mu­sic and retro moves will be served up in spades at the His­toric Dock­yard Chatham’s an­nual Salute to the 40s on Satur­day, Septem­ber 15 and Sun­day, Septem­ber 16.

Back big­ger and bet­ter than ever, the dock­yard will have vin­tage sounds play­ing, from the Glenn Miller Or­ches­tra UK, the Polka Dots Dolls, the D-day Dar­lings from Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent, and more.

If you’re still per­fect­ing your retro out­fit, there will be plenty of shop­ping op­por­tu­ni­ties and for those that want the 1940s ex­pe­ri­ence, you can also get your hair styled in the salon or bar­bers. Vin­tage cock­tails and bars will be on of­fer around the site, and fear not - it may be mark­ing the 1940s, but there are no ra­tions here! Visit the tea rooms, or try a home­made pie. The fam­ily fun in­cludes pa­rades, run­ning steam trains and the usual dock­yard gal­leries.
