I like to look up 1940's events here at Friends of the 40s as they have a really great calendar of listings.
Rockabilly gigs are easy to search here at The Complete Rock N Roll UK Gig Guide.
I also regularly check out "East Midlands Vintage World" on facebook to find out about events and what's happening.
But anyway, on with the show!
2nd June 2012 - Cool Cat Cry are playing the the Sleaford Legionnaires Club at 7.45pm. They're a 1950's rockabilly band and you can find out more about them here.
3rd June 2012 - A little further afield is the Tattershall Castle 1940's day which will be held from 11am to 5pm. I'm going to this because we always used to visit the castle when we were little and I've heard there might be a dressing up booth there too so you can try on clothes and get your hair and make-up done!
3rd June 2012 - From 1pm until late there's a Speakeasy going on at the Ye Olde Crowne on Clasketgate in Lincoln. This is the launch of what is planned to be a monthly event and I cannot wait! During the day there will be a BBQ, live blues music and vintage stalls to peruse. Later that evening things will take a more adult twist with burlesque performances and 52nd Jump Street will be bringing us some rhythm and blues, jazz and rock and roll to get everyone swinging into the wee small hours. For more information please see their Facebook site here.
