Haworth 1940s Weekend

Haworth 1940s Weekend celebrating its 20th anniversary and the 70th VE Day celebrations
Rising funds and awareness for SSAFA

It was a fabulous weekend of celebration and remembrance at Haworth 1940s Weekend. From tea dances to dancing in the street the whole community and beyond came together to celebrate and remember. Local businesses joined in the fun and made everyone welcome.

I had never been to an event like this before and was overwhelmed by the friendliness and good will which filled the town. Speaking to the ‘more mature’ public and participants, I was gripped with the stories they told.

We had set off with a basket of Sweet Williams to hand out in exchange for a photograph of the 1940s outfit they were wearing but I was so taken with listening to stories and chatting to people that I handed out the flowers just for the chat. I did take a few images. See below how many pictures our basket appears in.

It is a fabulous weekend and one I would recommend to everyone. Very educational for adults and children alike.

These Wrens were so endearing, the stories they had to tell should also be remembered.
It's a family affair, honouring our war heros at Haworth 1940s Weekend.
