Im afraid there is no waiting list. One or two may become available during the day at the 40s event, but due to space restrictions, we cannot sell any on the door.
After a day in the field, we have a night of nostalgia, with musicians from the Ashby Big Band and our very own crooner king, Kevin Mack.
The Hop takes place in the MaltHouse at Castle Bromwich Hall Hotel, from seven(ish) to eleven(ish). On site Bar and a Fab Forties bar menu.
Come with your glad rags on!
