You want to step back in time at the anual 1940s weekend?

This hugely popular event has attracted more and more visitors. It is widely regarded to be one of the best events of its type in the country. People come in uniform or 1940s civilian dress to add to the atmosphere. Others bring  gas masks and ration books.

You can taste wartime rations, tea, together with spam sandwiches, from the NAAFI at Weybourne. Watch the Jitterbug dancers and re-enactment groups. And admire a collection of 1940s vehicles and veteran and vintage bicycles. The charming  Poppyline steamtrain organises a fantastic range of events for this occasion.
