Join us at Brooklands Museum as we turn back the clock to the decade of fashion, commemoration, style and celebration at our annual 1940s Relived event!
This is a chance to put your hair up, grab your best period outfit and lace up the dance shoes.
Stock up on vintage gear at our extensive vintage market, featuring some of the best vintage sellers around, providing everything from hats, suits and shoes to accessories, books and original memorabilia.
Around the site you will find all the usual Museum exhibits, but you will never know what is around the next corner - you may find the Home Guard on parade or manning the Pill Box, an RAF Fighter Command Control Centre or US airborne troops carrying out demonstrations of infantry weapons and fire power.
If all this activity gets a bit much head into the Dance Marquee which is back by popular demand behind the Motoring Sheds, where you will be able to refresh yourself with some food and drink, listen to live music, take part in a dance lesson, or put your Jive, Jitterbug and Lindy Hop into practice.
