Let us transport you back in time with the sights, sounds and smells of the Forties.
Re-enactors from Spirit of the Homefront will be creating everyday scenes of the ordinary people who lived through WW2 with miners, military police and even the Man from the Ministry.
Home Front entertainer Lancashire Belle will be performing popular songs from the era - sing along, dance or just sit back and enjoy this one-woman show, full of humour and personality.
Get 'in the mood' and come dressed up in the styles of the day - maybe even treat yourself to a 40s' 'hairdo' by Hepkat Kitten Vintage Hairstyling - and get ready to boogie along to tunes played by DJ Fatcat.
Heritage train rides available on both days.
