Organised by Save the Children north Norfolk branch committee members Sheila Allison, Sue May and Tina Harrison, the event will feature 1940s classics sung by Lisa Wolfe, with dance teacher Steve Kennedy running Lindy Hop taster sessions for toe-tapping party-goers.

Mrs May, who has been involved with Save the Children for more than 20 years, said that together with an annual coffee morning, the dance party, which takes on a different theme each year, raises around £2,000 a year.

'It is very popular,' she added. 'And we thought it would be ideal to tie it in with the 1940s weekend.'

The dance runs at the Tyneside Club, Station Road, from 7.30pm-11.30pm. Tickets (priced £7) are available from Woodfields Den charity shop or by phoning 01263 822102.
