If you’ve never been to a 1940's Weekend before, make it top of your list of things to do this year!
No expense is spared in authentically transforming a town to recreate the wartime period, with shops decorated with Union Jacks and bunting, sandbags scattered about and the pavements crammed with the footsteps of troops.
Join in the fun by donning your favourite wartime costume, and rub shoulders with colourful characters.
Soak up the party atmosphere and see the sights and sounds of battles brought to life by live re-enactments, get up close to authentic military vehicle and aircraft and pick up ‘make do and mend’ tips from the cake, craft and vintage clothing stalls.
Not even the sound of howling air raid sirens will dampen the Blitz party spirit!
With loads of activities, games and retro fun fairs for children too, these top events provide great fun for all the family.
Whether wartime Britain brings back childhood memories or you want to experience what life was really like, a 1940's weekend is the best way to re-live this iconic decade.
