Now you can relive this unique time at special events across England so get prepared to max out those ration cards – it’s time to party like it’s 1945.The best way to travel back in time is by steam train at a 1940s weekend at The Embsay and Bolton Abbey or the Isle of Wight steam railways. If you’ve got a thing for men in uniforms or silk-stockinged starlets then local re-enactment groups bring the period to life with spectacular costumes and fun-filled nostalgic events.
Not even the wail of the air raid siren is enough to dampen the spirit of the British bulldog.Haworth 1940’s Weekend sees the streets of this picturesque village in West Yorkshire’s Bronte country transported back sixty years. The costumes on display are superb from spivs to Bette Davis look-a-likes, all turned out with period details. Churchill makes an appearance to boost morale and you can jive and jitterbug the night away at the dance halls.
Times may have been hard in the forties but when the Union Jack flies high and the bunting flaps in the breeze, it’s impossible not to join in for another rousing Vera Lynn sing-a-long.
