Brighouse 1940s weekend 2020 **postponed**

About the event

**Postponed, please click on the link under Further Information for latest details.** Come and see what life was like in this significant time in our history as the town centre and shops are transformed. You’ll be able to sit in a Messerschmitt, see Churchill, learn to dance the Lindy Hop or dance the night away with the Ashby Big Band.

This is just a flavour of the wonderful events taking place over this family fun weekend. The whole town centre will become the venue for a host of 1940’s events and displays from Spitfires to vintage vehicles, from home cooking to 1940’s dress and make up.

Why not join in the fun and come dressed in 40’s style and help bring a real period feel to the town. Note: SS Uniforms and Insignia are not permitted at the event and anyone wearing them will be asked to leave.
