1940’s Weekend

1940s Weekend Man And Woman Close

Put on your best polka dot dress, polish your dancing shoes and step back in time to celebrate the sights and sounds of wartime Britain on the ELR. It’s the biggest and most action packed 1940s event in the region!

Climb aboard a heritage steam train as we transport you back to 1945. It’s Britain’s finest hour and you’ll certainly know it – with live reenactments, live music and loads of lively fun.

There’s fun for all the family at this all-singing, all-dancing 40s spectacular. Up and down the 12 mile line, at every station on the ELR, you’ll find all kinds of 1940s themed activities, entertainment and action-packed fun. From tank displays and battle re-enactments to live music and dance classes, this event is not to be missed.

Watch this space for more information as and when it becomes available.
