We'll Meet Again - VE Day Celebrations at the People's Palace and Winter Gardens, Glasgow. 1 May 2010

World War II Big BandLee & Seema from the Fly Right Dance Company with Jon Ritchie, June Love
and That Swing Sensation Dance Band

On 1 May 2010, The People's Palace in Glasgow went back in time to 1945. The War in Europe had just been won and it was time to put on your dancing shoes to join in the celebrations.

During the fun-filled day of activities and entertainment, visitors had a chance to meet some of the more colourful, and the occasionally less reputable, characters of the period, discover rationing in the war time shopping experience and learn how to dance to big band classics from That Swing Sensation with the help of Fly Right Dance Company. For the youngsters, and the young at heart, there was the opportunity to try out some traditional games in the "back court" or make flags to join in the celebrations.
