The Blitz Party

Swipe on that red lipstick and heat up the curling iron – we’re heading back to the 40s for The Blitz Party

London’s simply wizard war-time night out The Blitz Party is gearing up for this Saturday – and it’s gonna be a blast (arf arf). The venue? A wartime East End air-raid shelter, complete with sandbags, searchlights, blackout curtains, oil lamps and military bunk beds.

SEE PICTURES FROM INSTYLE'S BEST OF BRITISH PARTY

Swing bands, DJs and performers will get you lindy-hopping and jitter-bugging to big band tunes, while The Spitfire Bar will serve Kentish Ale and hearty food – no rations here, ma’am.

If you fancy dancing with a be-medalled man in uniform, then don your best tea-dress and get thee to the Village Underground in Shoreditch this Saturday 30 January from 8pm.

HOW TO GET 1940S HOLLYWOOD WAVES

You could paint your legs with gravy and paint a line up ’em with kohl pencil, but we at InStyle will only go so far in the name of authenticity. Try faux-vintage lingerie brand What Katie Did for real seamed stockings, £12.50.

(Of course, if the 40s isn’t your thing, there’s always Prohibition in February for a bit of 20s Jazz Age glam…)

Tickets are £15 from Ticketweb, The Blitz Party, or call 020 7724 1617.
