English Heritage

This May, English Heritage is getting England swing dancing to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day. Over the bank holiday weekend we’ll be sending out our dance experts to help individuals and local groups across the 48 counties of England, to learn how to Lindy Hop in true 1940s fashion. They’ll then take to town squares, city streets and village halls to showcase their new skills at community celebrations.

Anyone can apply to be part of Dance for VE Day, whether you’re having a knees up in a Nissen hut or a party in the park, and we’re especially interested to hear from you if you’re planning to get the whole community involved in your celebrations, regardless of age, ability, background or belief.

All you need to do is to fill in the application form on the English heritage website: https://www.english-heritage.org.uk/VE-Day by 5pm on March 8th 2020.

After the closing date, we’ll choose one application from each county in England – and we’ll do everything we can to get you dancing in time VE Day 75.
