15 July 2017

The spirit of the ‘40s will live on into the night as a separate evening event takes place on Saturday 15 July.

Don’t forget to dress up as you’ll be dancing the night away to popular wartime trio the D-Day Darlings and other live bands who’ll fill the cobbled streets with the sweet sounds of the ‘40s!

We welcome all visitors to take part and dress 1940s, however please respect that this is a homefront event - Allied Forces only. 


How to get the 40s look
