Uniforms and fashions from 70 years ago were recreated around The Picture House, Uckfield, tonight (May 8).
Military re-enactors, brought together by Duncan Bennett, and people dressed in the period-look were attending an exclusive advanced screening of A Royal Night Out, supposedly telling the story of what happened to Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret on VE Day evening in 1945 at the end of World War Two.
It was all part of a party night put on by the cinema and its associated restaurant.
Later there were celebrations at the Victoria Pleasure Ground from 8.30pm, including community singing, the lighting of the beacon and a short fireworks display. See report, pictures and video here
