A 1940S Valentine's dance is planned at the National Waterways Museum in Ellesmere Port.
Following the success of last year’s 1940s Wartime Weekend, the museum is hosting the dance on Saturday, February 15.
The Tom Rolt Conference Centre will be transformed back to the era with period decoration, re-enactors and music of the war years from GI Jive.
A ration book supper will be available to purchase on the evening as well as there being a licensed bar.
Organiser Mark Downes says the ‘home front’ style event is aimed at residents and 40s enthusiasts from across the north west.
“The Valentine’s dance provides a great opportunity to do something a bit different and decidedly romantic for the Valentine's weekend.
“We are encouraging participants to get in the mood by dressing the part in a 40s uniform, de-mob suit or tea dress which you can easily hire if you don't already own one but please no Axis uniforms.
“If you can waltz, foxtrot, quickstep or lindy hop this event is for you, but equally it is a wonderful opportunity to just soak up the nostalgic atmosphere,” said Mark.
The dance will take place from 7pm to 11pm.
Tickets are available from the museum reception in person for only £6, including site entrance, or by phoning 0151 355 5017.
“We expect the dance to be a sell out so don't delay in getting your tickets,” Mark added.
The event is a part of a programme of themed events planned for 2014 with further details coming soon.
For those wanting to indulge further in the 40s experience, a dance lesson will be held in the same venue from 4pm to 5pm the same day.
