Grassington 1940s Weekend
September 15, 2017 - September 17, 2017
After setting up Grassington’s first ever 1940s weekend event back in 2012, we are now proud to welcome you to our ever growing sixth annual weekend long event. This year as is tradition we kick the weekend off with live music and dancing up at the Devonshire Institute (the Town Hall’s posh name).
Acts to be confirmed.
On Saturday and Sunday, ride in on a vintage bus and be taken back in time as you land in the heart of the re-enactor camps. Here you find the encampments, vintage market stalls, skirmishes, military displays and military vehicles.
Heading up into the village, take a walk around the famous cobbled streets and you will hear the sounds of the 40’s throughout the day as you browse around Grassington’s shops, cafes and public houses. Carry on up towards the Devonshire Institute and you can find Murray and Jill for a dance in the street, or maybe even chance upon Carolyn on the trapeze.
From 2-4pm come and take part in the afternoon tea dances led by Maggie and Geoff Forrest in the Town Hall.
