PRE-WAR DANCE

Mid 1930's

By Andy Gilbert

This is a photo of a dance in Newhaven. My Dad is kneeling at the centre of the front row, with his arm around my Mum - his girlfriend at the time. From his hairstyle and the suit he is wearing, the year is 1935. (We have other dated photos with the same suit!)

We think the venue was the Drill Hall in Fort Rise, but what was the event? Were there regular dances held there, perhaps?
