Pateley Bridge winds back the clock across the whole area taking you right back to 1940s and war time period. This fun 1940s themed weekend has lots going on for young and old alike in Pateley Bridge, this being the capital of Nidderdale set in the Yorkshire Dales and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Lots to see and do with an opportunity to dress up in stylish 1940s clothes and learn about history during the wartime period! Admission to the event is free!
Ample all day car parking for the event is available on the Nidderdale Showground.
The atmosphere of Wartime Britain is created through people dressed in 1940s clothing, vehicles from the period, living military re-enactors, displays of military vehicles plus an RAF WW2 Plotting War Room and land army girls with agricultural displays. Pateley Bridge and its many shops, cafes & pubs will be evoking the wartime spirit too with doorways sandbagged and windows taped up.
Go back in time with 1940s songs being sung live on the streets,the Summerbridge and Dacre Silver Band will also be playing in the town. Visit either outside stallholders or ones in the School Hall to view collectable and vintage items which are for sale.
There is dancing, a fly over by a WW2 spotter plane and the chance to be photographed with a full size Spitfire plane!
Look out for the policeman keeping an eye out for spivs and the local Homeguard who will be patrolling the streets. There are the Newfoundland Dogs who were used to rescue WW2 sailors from the sea.
Come the evening, there will be a dance in the Memorial Hall with renowned 1940s entertainer Paul Harper supported by the Palm Court Orchestra. The many pubs will evoke memories with music and lots of fun associated with the 1940s.
