The Bressingham Blitz 1940s Dance, Bressingham Steam Museum, Norfolk - 21st May 2010

As part of a fundraising charity drive, one of Isobel's Mommy Mafia friends organises a 1940s dance at the Steam Museum in Bressingham. The event is well attended, and it's an interesting venue, which includes a Victorian carousel doing rides, plenty of trains and steam engines, and even a permanent Dads' Army exhibition . Clive gets his 1940s GMC 6x6 truck out to give us all a lift over, and even though it breaks down on the A143 near Stuston, it adds to the fun. Meanwhile, Mikey-P and Bill have dressed up as German soldiers.
