Saturday evening in the main marquee will host the Kalamazoo Dance Band (tickets £15pp) supported by forties DJ Bazooka Joe.
The main events take place on Lytham Green and the shops in the centre of Lytham get into the wartime spirit too by dressing up with bunting, sandbags and more. The event is FREE. Parking on Lytham Green is available for just £5 per car per day. Dressing in the 1940s period is very much encouraged (although we do ask you be respectful and not dress in the more extreme elements of the Nazi regime or wear anything that is likely to offend).
There will be vintage stalls for your 1940s clothing and knick knacks, plus food and drink. Also planned is some entertainment including Punch and Judy and some old fashion fairground rides.
We look forward to welcoming you.
