Welshpool 1940's weekend


Transport yourself back to the 1940s for a weekend of entertainment in Welshpool; imagine you are in a small town where 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 encouraged to attend the weekend in British 1940’s period dress, either military or civilian. German uniforms will be allowed as part of living history displays. Firearms of any sort, replica or de-activated will NOT be allowed in the town centre.

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, trade stands, music and dancing; all with a 1940’s theme. There will also be special activities for children.

Spitfire, Military & Civilian Vehicles, Re-enactors, Vintage Hairdresser, Talks, Displays & Exhibitions, Vintage & Militaria Traders, Children's Vintage Fun Fair

The Ronnies, Jeep Johnson, Moonlight Serenade, Ava Evergreen, Kitty Lamare, Boogaloo Babes, Colin Bourdiec, Blitz Dancers, Dawn Alacey, plus many others!
