We have something for the whole family ranging from Trade Stalls offering a wide range of 1940s style clothing and memorabilia through to static displays of vehicles and equipment. There will be (weather dependant) a Battle of Britain Memorial Flight fly past and a Parachute Display Team as well as singing and dancing and the opportunity to test your skills at a number of street games.
