Action Heroes Fancy Dress Theme

Action Heroes is today’s fancy dress theme as today is the birthday of one of the great action-hero actors ofIndiana Jones Style Fancy Dress our time – Harrison Ford, who was born in 1942. Although he has made a wide range of films from political drama (‘Clear And Present Danger’) to light comedy ‘(Working Girl’) he is irrevocably associated with Indiana Jones, a role he returned to a couple of years ago in ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’. Unbelievably for some, we are coming up to the thirtieth anniversary of the UK premiere of the first Indiana film – The Raiders of the Lost Ark’ on 30th July. In honour of that milestone we are thinking of suggesting a Scavenger Hunt event! As these things require some preparation, we thought we would give you a few weeks’ warning but whilst Action Heroes suggests itself as today’s theme, if you would like to work a little wider, Frank Sinatra made his first record this day in 1939 so ‘Idols’ could be an alternative.
