In pictures: Brayford 1940s Day

This story is over

The Brayford waterfront in Lincoln was transported back to the 1940s on Sunday, August 23 with a number of activities and a flypast from the BBMF Dakota.

In commemoration of the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe, the Brayford was transformed with entertainment, shopping stalls and displays.

The Lincoln BIG event featured the ‘Lancashire Belle’, who sang 40s favourites.

There was an interesting living history enactment showing what life was like during the era, a wartime Blitz fire engine display by the AFS/NFS living history group and vintage military vehicles from the Mid Lincs Military Vehicle Trust.
