Awesome Swing

Plan Your Visit

Put on your dancing shoes for a swell day of Swing music, dance lessons and other 1940s-style family fun at the War Museum. Adults and children alike will love listening to a live Swing band, watching an energetic dance performance, and learning the Jitterbug and the Lindy Hop. Discover for yourself why Swing was all the rage during the Second World War, when songs like Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Jumpin Jive and Chattanooga Choo Choo gave servicemen and women, factory workers, homemakers and children a welcome escape from life’s hardships, if just for an evening. Once your feet are sore from dancing, you can try your hand at some vintage crafts, and take your handiwork home.
