The event will be held in an original Second World War hangar at Ellough Airfield, raising funds for the Louise Hamilton Centre.

The dances have been running since 2001 and in the past have raised over £100,000 for two local hospices.

Since 2004, the dances have run over two nights, this year on June 23 and 24, to account for the huge demand.

People are encouraged to dress in 1940s wartime dress for the event and there will be dancing to the Super Swing Big Band.
