Well at least it didn’t rain! For the 3rd year in a row I had the honour of performing at the Nottingham 1940s Knees-Up on the band stand at Nottingham Castle alongside the wonderful Kalamazoo Dance Band. The 1940s Knees-up is organised by Nottingham City Council and has been part of their events calendar for well over 10 years.
