Pickering 1940s Wartime weekend with evening entertainment

Today we head to the Pickering Wartime Weekend which includes a full programme of WWII and 1940s themed entertainment and events.  Attractions include live music, stalls, dancing, parades, 1940s food and drink, period markets and vehicle exhibitions. You may choose to embrace the theme and wear your finest 40s style gloves, hats, khaki or lace, or simply enjoy the event as a sightseer. Coach parking for the event is available at Eastgate Car Park.

This evening after a set 3 course dinner we take a nostalgic step back in time with musical entertainment inspired by the 1940s and wartime Britain. Sing along with our talented entertainers as they perform some of the favourites of the time such as songs by Vera Lynn, Gracie Fields and many others. Fancy dress is also optional this evening.
