Ladies and gents will be able to get all dolled up in their finest 40's clobber with a 'Blitz Party' hosted in The Arches, in Shoreditch.

Mark Heaton, of, said: "The roaring 20s and the war-time 40s are both fascinating periods in British history and at All Fancy Dress we have experienced a growing popularity in these decades throughout the latter part of 2012. These eras also gave birth to some of the most sophisticated and glamorous outfits for guys and girls alike.

"New Year's Eve is one night of the year where we all like to dress to impress and the 1920's and 40's were certainly golden periods for elegance and charm."

Party-goers with tickets for vintage New Year's Eve events can get set for a night on the tiles with fantastic 1920s flapper and gangster outfits as well as a host of wartime costumes from All Fancy Dress.
