Tonight „s theme is a wartime café in Paris where members of the French Resistance meet members of the
TV series Allo Allo to celebrate the liberation of Paris! The organisers of The Croyde Weekender ask that
you make a big effort to dress in the style of the French Resistance or cast of BBC‟s TV comedy Allo Allo or
traditional French to create a fun evening for the final dance of the weekend in Le Café Croyde.
FRENCH RESISTANCE
On stage this evening The Croyde Weekender brings you the wonderful SWING MUSEUM, one of the
most popular bands at last year‟s Glenn Miller festival.
The quartet - two guitars, bass and violin—accurately recreate the Hot Gypsy sound of Django Reinhardt
and Stephane Grapelli that will make you actually think you‟ve stepped back to a café in wartime Paris.
These guys will not only have you dancing Balboa, Collegiate Shag, Lindy and Jive they will expect you to
sing along with them to old classic tracks too! Viva La France!
Best dressed person (or most creative!) will win a copy of SWING MUSEUM‟s fabulous CD. Ooh La La.
