“This year our musical extravaganza at The Aviation Heritage Centre at East Kirkby returns to its traditional Big Band format and its traditional mid-June date. As usual the evening will begin with a picnic party under the watchful eye of Just Jayne, Lincolnshire Aviation Centre’s historic Lancaster accompanied by the strains of Kodacrome to get your toes tapping. The evening will be hosted in one of the country’s most atmospheric venues, surrounded not only by Just Jayne but a setting of memorabilia that takes you back three quarters of a century, and appropriately this year our headline band is The Royal Air Force Squadronaires, one of the United Kingdom’s finest big bands, with a history going back to 1939 when many of London’s professional musicians were recruited into the Central Band of the Royal Air Force.”
