About the Event
Our 1940s event is set in the heart of Ingleton with the impressive backdrop of Ingleborough and the village’s historic viaduct. Walk through the village to see history come alive at our re-enactors camp, admire the vintage vehicles on display in the streets, join in with old fashioned fete games and play with traditional toys, shop for antiques and vintage accessories, you can even get a 1940’s hair do! Check out our amazing street performers and stop to listen to an array of music from the era by our wonderful entertainers, or join in and have a dance, we can even show you how at our dance lessons! Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled and ears open for our parades, you may catch a glimpse of Churchill or the young Princess Elizabeth. Once you’ve done all of that you will probably be ready for some refreshments, our team run ‘The Regiment’ bar in the Square if you fancy a tipple or if you’re in need of a butty and a brew the pop-up café at the Community Centre have you covered, all funds from these go back into future events.
Ingleton 1940s Weekend is a non profit event organised by a small team of dedicated volunteers. Our aim is to showcase our great village by creating an event that caters to all, whether you be young or old, local or visiting, enthusiast or just someone looking for a good day out! Because of this Ingleton 1940s Weekend is free to attend! We only charge at our evening swing dance and afternoon tea dance. We hold a raffle at the event and you can find donation buckets located around the village if you wish to make a contribution. Over the year we host all sorts of fundraisers including jumble sales, cake stalls and quiz nights.
We thank everyone who supports our event with an extra big thanks to our sponsors! We cannot wait to see you at the 2023 event,
Ingleton 1940s Team
