Sheringham 1940’s Day: Saturday 17th September

Sheringham 1940’s Day: Saturday 17th September 2022.Widely felt to be one of the best events of its type in the Country. Step back in time to the days of the blitz, rationing and utility clothing.One weekend a year, in September, the seaside town of Sheringham goes back several decades to the 1940s. Centred around the North Norfolk Railway, The Poppy Line, the station provides a great backdrop for the comings and goings of people all dressed in vintage costumes and with steam trains and heritage buses running all day. By far the biggest event of its kind in Norfolk. Military and civilian vehicles, music, dancing, ration food, re-enactments and of course an intensive steam hauled train service. Dress up in the period to really feel like you have been transported back in time. This is one of those events you really shouldn’t miss! The 1940s weekend also encompasses the town of Sheringham and Holt with a vast amount of entertainment taking place on the stations of Sheringham, Weybourne and Holt and venues in the towns. You may decide to catch a Heritage Bus to Holt where the Town celebrates the wartime efforts of allied forces and the remarkable resilience shown by those who dealt with the hardships of life on the Home Front. Feel the excitement, fear, hope and bravery of the Blitz.  Smell the Golden Age of Steam.

Please Note There is no charge for the Vintage Festival but you will need to purchase  tickets on the day  if you wish to travel on the Steam Trains or Heritage Buses. Price: Adult £20- Child £12 (Price is for Coach Travel – Free events take place throughout the Town)
