The Memphis Belle Swing Band will be re-living the music of the Second World War at a hangar dance at Bassingbourn Barracks.
Organiser Chris Murphy said he decided to take on the task of planning the hangar dance after the success of a previous event several years ago.
Then about 1,000 people packed a hangar at the barracks.
"It's quite appropriate to have this particular band as the Memphis Belle was involved in all its missions from Bassingbourn," said Mr Murphy.
