Dedicated revellers took on the inclement weather yesterday to dress up for the 1940s Day at Villa Bologna in Attard.

For this full-day event, visitors were encouraged to don attire reminiscent of wartime glamour, behind the backdrop of the villa's beautiful gardens and to the tune of swing bands and electroswing DJ sets.

The event also included a soup kitchen, cinema, pop up hair and makeup salon, re-enactments, tea dance, and a catwalk amongst others.
