10 May 2019

10 MayThe last few weeks have been full of fabulous events and things to look forward to – after this things are much quieter!

Tonight was my favourite night out of the year – The Hangar Ball. I absolutely love it – everyone is dressed up in 1940’s style, there is dancing, a big band and war rations food but it is just such a fabulous evening;s entertainment.

Day 124

Hangar Ball

Hangar Ball night! One of my favourite nights of the year.

I love everything about it – the dressing up, the hair, the 1940’s music and dancing and the opportunity to go out with a bunch of lovely friends and then seeing even more fabulous people.

Amazing night out. Love it!

A year in pictures – Day 126

Hangar Ball 2017Tonight we went to the Specsavers Hangar Ball. It is absolutely my favourite night out of the whole year.

Nearly 800 people in the sports hall which has been transformed into a dance venue with a big band and a music act as well as a compere who actually was quite entertaining.

Good food and company, good alcohol (hmmmm a bit too much for some people eh?!) and an amazing atmosphere.

Unfortunately I managed to turn my ankle doing the conga so that made the end of the evening rather a disappointment!

Oh well… see you next year1

2016 Project366 (Day 132)

Hangar Ball outfitI haven’t taken any photos today so here is one from the Hangar Ball at the weekend.

I love dressing up in 1940’s clothing – the style suits me and I think it is really glamorous.

The dress was an ebay bargain, the handbag was £1 from a charity shop, the coat, pearls and the brooch were Grandma Mary’s.

2016 Project366 (Day 128)

Hangar Ball

Tonight The Mister and I went to the Specsavers Hangar Ball. This year they ran two events instead of one and both were totally sold out. I reckon there was at least 700 people there each night.

The sports hall at Beau Sejour was decked out and decorated in 1940’s style, everyone was in fancy dress, they had a fantastic Big Band and other artists and the evening was taken up with eating, drinking and dancing.

It is probably my favourite event of the whole year and it is so good-natured. Wonderful.

2012 Project365 (Day 129)

Vintage funTuesday was a day of massively mixed emotions. In the morning we found out that the house we have put an offer in for was accepted. Hopefully we should complete by 14 of June which would be amazing! The afternoon was traumatic, but I can’t be bothered to go into that right now!

In the evening The Mister and I went to the Specsavers Hangar Ball. In the afternoon they hold a Tea Dance in the same venue for the OAPs on the island. The ball was amazing – the hall had been decked out with vintage style advertising and covered in red, white and blue decorations, they even had a parachuting man hanging from the ceiling. The entertainment was a fantastic big band and some singers, one who sounded just like Frank Sinatra. They also had magicians and a brilliant balloon modeller.

The Mister dressed in RAF uniform and looked especially dashing and I wore a tea dress with Grandma Mary’s fur coat!

It was just a fantastic evening out and the best bit was seeing everyone dressed up in 1940’s style clothing. Everyone made the effort and seeing all these people dancing just added to the atmosphere. Superb entertainment and a brilliant night out!
