~A sea of well known celebrities are taught how to dance by professional dancers. They perform every Saturday night in the autumn and winter and each week contestants are   judged by an expert panel. The Sunday evening finds one couple leaving the programme. The show culminates in a dance final with the top dancers competing for the Glitter ball trophy.

Yes. Strictly Come Dancing has been humiliating and applauding celebrities since 15th May 2004. It continues to be a popular programme on Saturday nights despite recent controversy over relationship issues.

Rewind 60 years ago and you have a more old fashioned version of what we’re all familiar with. 1940’s Ballroom and Latin dancing was popular during the war years and thanks to an  event coming soon it’s introducing people to this dance form once again.

“Back to the Blitz” is taking place on Friday April 26th from 7pm - Saturday April 27th 12am. It will be based at UCLAN’S Foster Refectory in the Foster Building, Preston Campus.

It will be a ballroom and latin dancing competition which will also include social dancing rounds, entertainment from some brilliant acts and a hot buffet and sweet treats.

If  dancing’s not for you then the judging panel is the ideal alternative. You’ll be assisted by professional judges to help you score well. Throughout the evening there will also be quiz rounds, games and a raffle.

Tickets for the event cost £20 which includes a hot buffet and entry into the raffle. For more information or if you would like to purchase a ticket please visit the events Facebook page ( Back to the Blitz)

1940’s style fancy dress is encouraged to help make the  night more authentic but if the 40's isn't your style please dress to impress. All profits raised will go straight to the Alzheimer's Society, a charity who are leading the way in Dementia research and support.

Catapult yourself back to the 1940’s, when life was simple and dancing was free:-

  • Friday, April 26 7pm – Sat, April 27, 12am
