SHERINGHAM 1940'S WEEKEND

06/09/2014

 20 - 21 September 2014

 
Come and enjoy the 1940s weekend on the North Norfolk Railway, our most popular event for adults by far!
 
Over the years this event has attracted more and more visitors and more and more exhibitors. It is widely felt to be one of the best events of its type in the country. People who attended last year were booking accommodation before they left as they enjoyed it so much!
 
Come in uniform or 1940s civilian dress to add to the atmosphere. Don't forget your gas mask and ration books!
 
Hear
 
The singing of American Tan, air raids, the Sheringham Salvation Army Band, Nostalgia Unlimited and gramophone music.
 
Taste
 
Wartime rations, tea, together with spam sandwiches, from the NAAFI.
 
See
 
Jitterbug dancers, re-enactment groups, a collection of 1940s vehicles and veteran and vintage bicycles.
 
Feel
 
The excitement, fear, hope and bravery of the Blitz.
 
Smell
 
The golden age of steam.
