Description

Situated on the Lisburn Road in Belfast, Foster’s Ballroom was a popular venue in the glory days of dancehalls. This film, with added music soundtrack, captures a night in which the ballroom rolled back the years to put on a night of 1920s-themed music and costumes. A fleet of vintage cars delivered the revellers to the hall and the slightly sped-up film completes the illusion of the 1920s as the costumed dancers prepare to Charleston the night away.
