The spirit of the ‘40s will live on into the night as a separate evening event takes place on Saturday 14 July.

Don’t forget to dress up to Jitterbug and Jive your way through a night of 1940s entertainment.

With music to keep your feet tapping, characters from the past and an array of stalls to shop for your 40s wardrobe & retro items for your home; if the sirens sound we’ll 'Keep Calm and Party on'.

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