1940s Sheringham

1940s Sheringham

Departing Suffolk & Essex - By far the biggest live event in the North Norfolk Railway Calendar. Step back in time to the days of the blitz, rationing and utility clothing.

Over the years this event has attracted more and more visitors and more and more exhibitors. It is widely felt to be one of the best events of its type in the country. People who attended last year were booking accommodation before they left as they enjoyed it so much!

 

Come in uniform or 1940s civilian dress to add to the atmosphere. Don't forget your gas mask and ration books!

 

Hear.... The singing of American Tan & Timescape, air raids, the Sheringham Salvation Army Band, Nostalgia Unlimited and gramophone music.

 

Taste.... Wartime rations, tea, together with spam sandwiches, from the NAAFI at Weybourne. A Cup of Char'  and a Wad' from the Institute tea rooms at Holt.

 

See.... Jitterbug dancers, re-enactment groups, a collection of 1940s vehicles and veteran and vintage bicycles.

 

Feel.... The excitement, fear, hope and bravery of the Blitz.

 

Smell.... The golden age of steam.
