London based musical duo, Public Service Broadcasting, are to play three exclusive gigs in a secret location at the RAF Museum in Hendon as part of Museums at Night 2014, on May 15, 16 and 17, 2014.
In what will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the Museums at Night festival, the RAF Museum in North London will provide a fitting and atmospheric backdrop for the band as they perform their debut release The War Room EP - in its entirety. Granted unique access to propaganda films from WWII-era Britain by the BFI, the band perform in front of breathtaking visuals to a soundtrack of atmospheric synths, pounding drums, Krautrock guitars and poignant piano - beaming the past back at us through vintage TV sets and state of the art modern video projections.
In addition to Public Service Broadcasting's set you can expect a night of 40s, 50s and 60s themed entertainment: the chance to take part in a mission to knit a life sized plane in a recreation 1940s living room, whilst being serenaded by a live cabaret singer; a 50s and 60s Silent Disco, and traditional games of giant snakes and ladders all taking place within the shadow of an RAF Lancaster Bomber. Tickets go on sale 10th February, priced '£28 plus booking fee, and will be available at https://royalairforcemuseum.digitickets.co.uk/tickets
