We were planning on having a Glenn Miller Tribute in our World Famous Blister Hangar. Then a friend of the airfield suggested that we could not only welcome one of the best Glenn Miller Tributes there is, but also add in an evening of Big Band brilliance from other icons.
The result: The Dave Pearce Orchestra playing the music of the by-gone big band era from Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Woody Herman, Count Basie and Ted Heath - to name a few - and when using featured vocalists, the songs of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and many more!
All in one evening, from the heart of a WWII USAAF Airbase. There may even be a special appearance by a WWII aircraft or two.
The Band will play from 7pm. Doors open from 1800. The Attack and Destroy Bar will be available throughout for drinks and we'll be joined by some suitably retro food stands as well as Jimmy's Cafe being available until 1900.
You're very welcome to bring your own chairs and/ or blankets. We can also provide some seats but availability will be somewhat limited.
Everyone needs a ticket. Whilst kids under 12 can go free during the day, we do need to charge admission for everyone to see the Dave Pearce Orchestra.
Parking is free.
Admission to the Dave Pearce Orchestra does not include access to the rest of the event. Similarly, Daytime Access does not include the Dave Pearce Orchestra. Daytime Access is from 1000-1700 both days.
