The King of Ballroom returns to Chorleywood to chat about his brilliant new Buckingham novel The Ballroom Blitz.
September 1940. As the skies split apart and bombs rain down on London, it’s all the staff at the famed Buckingham Hotel can do to keep their guests in the luxury they’re accustomed to, and evoke the magic of the Grand ballroom for them each night.

As the bombing intensifies and Christmas fast approaches, somehow the show must go on…
