What is it?
On the first weekend of July, the north Yorkshire village of Ingleton turns itself into a French style 1940s village. Ingleton 1940s Weekend aims to be a celebration of the era’s music, fashion, and its ‘all in it together’ mentality.
The weekend kicks off on Friday 1st July, with a dance in the beer garden of The Wheatsheaf, as Hep to The Jive get things swinging.
The entertainment continues on the Saturday with music and dance in the ‘occupied’ village square. There will also be a visit from Thwaites’ Shire Horses, vintage stalls, and a screening of the Dad’s Army film.
On the Sunday there will be a street parade with the City of Bradford Pipe Band, a marching contingent, vintage military and civilian vehicles, and an appearance from ‘Churchill’. Also on the Sunday will be a tea dance, the Silver Stars Parachute Display Team, and a performance from the Helen Howard Dance Troupe.
Across the weekend there will be street games, a bouncy castle, static displays from vehicles and aircraft, including a Spitfire, and live music.
