Lincoln 1940s weekend extravaganza returns in August

Dig out your best tea dress and dust off those vintage military uniforms, Lincoln 1940s weekend is back for another year.

Don’t forget to bring your gas mask too, and you could end up winning prizes in the best-dressed competition.

It is promised to be two days of fabulous fun on August 10 and 11, with events on all around the city.

People can soak up the 1940s vibe outside the Castle Hill Club on both days by listening to The Blighty Belles and The Lincolnshire Vocal Academy from 11 am.

The Dreambelles will be performing.

St Paul’s in the Bail will also play host to Lindy Hop, Jitterbug and Jive, 52nd Street Jump, May Blossom, and Kelly Waldie at the same time.

Lincoln BIG, the event organisers, are also hoping to have the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at some point over the weekend.

They bill it as an unmissable two-day event which will feature vintage cars in the Castle with 1940s themed stalls selling vintage goods.

All wartime performances will last for between 20 and 40 minutes and will include Life on the Home Front, Know Your Enemy and The Changing Face of Combate.

The uphill area of the city will also be decorated with vintage and patriotic bunting.
