Ingleton 1940s Weekend is run by a very small but dedicated Team of volunteers who work incedibly hard all year to keep this event going! None of us get paid for doing this, we just love seeing our wonderful village busy and full of visitors and re-enactors! Every penny made at the event goes back into making the next years event even bigger and better. We thank everyone for their support (and over the past few years, your patience and understanding)!

I would personally like to say an extra thank you to our committee and those who volunteer at the event, this is only possible because of your hard work, time & energy!
