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 30th June, 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 be a visit from Thwaites’ Shire Horses, vintage stalls, 1940s themed musical performances, 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, static displays of vehicles, and stall selling 1940s memorabilia and clothing.
