September 2015

The Hummingbird Centre stepped back in time in September to the 1940’s.

With the help of the local Community we transformed the Launton Sports and Social Club by creating a 1940’s dance hall Buffet Dance everyone who came along added that extra touch by dressing up.

We would like to thank Sparky Mark and Anne for providing the entertainment, during the year they have helped out at a few of our events, contributing to the success of the Bicester Carnival held at Pingle Fields in conjunction with Armed Forces Day in June where The Hummingbird Centre provided the entertainment, bringing together local bands and singers of Bicester.

Bicester Buffet provided the food creating an array of 1940’s food with good old fashioned Spam sandwiches, Rabbit Pate, Bread and Butter Pudding and our very own Hummingbird appearing amongst the pudding displays.

Bicester Home Guard added that extra touch by providing us with the decorations which enabled us to create the dance hall affect.

I’m sure by taking a look at the photos below, you will get a feel for what the evening was like – and hopefully be tempted to come along to our 1950’s event next year – which was requested by many as they left that evening.  All I can say is watch this space!!


It was a great evening bringing together the Community of Bicester under one roof, using local businesses to create an evening that was all about having fun.

We would like to say thank you to all who took part.
