Osprey Leisure Centre will be hosting a D-Day Dance Show Evening on Saturday 3rd June from 7.30pm. The evening promises to be a real wartime experience and a chance to step back in time to the music of the day. Those attending are welcome to come in 1940’s style.

 Chris Hutchings, The Air Raid Warden hosting the evening said “I would like to invite everyone to join me and the crew in the Shelter at Osprey Leisure Centre for an evening of light entertainment from the 1940s.  The evening will include D-Day music you can enjoy and dance to. Historical media and props in conjunction with special effects will help you cast your mind back in the day.   “Put that light out!”

 The evening will include sound and lighting effects, static displays, music, wartime footage, a bar and food which can be purchased during the evening.  Tickets are available from Osprey Leisure Centre and are priced at £10 per ticket. The event is being supported by the Castletown D-Day Centre who recently opened a museum in Castletown.

Nigel Williams, General Manager at Osprey Leisure Centre said “This event is the first D-Day event that we have run at the centre.  Each year we welcome the veterans’ parade at Osprey but this evening of wartime memories and dancing will hopefully be something to remember, with a view to make this an annual event.  Tickets are limited so I would encourage anyone who is interested to come forward as soon as possible. Any funds that we raise during the evening will be invested back into the Osprey Leisure centre charity.”
