The Dig For Victory Show’s Christmas dance saw the Princes Hall decked out in decorations from the 1940s while guests arrived dressed for the occasion.

Teachers from Dance Bristol were on hand to give a lesson before the floor was packed with partygoers enjoying the sounds of Five Star Swing.

Organiser James Shopland said: “We would like to thank everyone that supported our dance on Saturday night.

“It was great fun and a huge success and we were delighted to welcome old and new faces alike.
