Welshpool 1940s Weekend

26th September 2019 - 29th September 2019

Transport yourself back to the 1940s and imagine you are in a small town were evacuated children are arriving from the major industrial towns of the North West, soldiers are going back to barracks after being on leave, aircrew are heading off to airfields of Shropshire. So in the words of the song “Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag, and smile, smile, smile.”

Members of the public are invited to attend the weekend and encouraged to wear British 1940’s period dress, either military or civilian but this is not compulsory.

What to Expect: A light hearted look at life in a small rural town in the 1940s. As you walk around the town, you will be captivated by Re-Enactors and Entertainers in period costume, vintage vehicle displays including an M10 tank & a Spitfire aeroplane, trade stands, shop window displays, militaria & vintage traders, living history displays, concerts, music and dancing; all with a 1940’s theme. There will also be special activities for children.
Each day begins at 10am and goes on till 11.30pm. Majority of the activities are free with the exception of the dances, concerts, dinner etc.
