Queensbury Community 1940’s Events

Cancelled for 2019

Queensbury 1940’s Event for 2019 has been cancelled. This is due to Richard, the committee chairman leaving our selected venue of the Raggalds. We were in the process of applying for a road closure for Roper Lane, from it’s junction with Green Lane to the old Raggalds School. 

We do not have an alternative venue at this time and the time span to 22 June does not give us enough time to make alternative arrangements.

We plan on resuming the event in June 2020 and will actively seek a suitable venue.

To facilitate the return of the 1940’s to our village, we will in the meantime hold fund raising events for example a 1960’s evening, a tea dance and believe it or not we have been asked to put on a Northern Soul evening.
