Immerse yourself in Britain's heyday for a memorable and nostalgic day out for all the family.

An extraordinary time with even more extraordinary people. Be inspired by the music, dress and food of the era that changed the world.

Spend your day wandering 1940s street scenes, sing along and dance to the music of the era. Dressing up in clothes of the time is positively encouraged (don’t worry if you don’t want to, all are welcome) but if you arrive and fancy popping on something vintage, there are plenty of pop-up shops selling 1940s clothes. You can even get your hair done in pin-curls at the onsite hairdresser.

Fill up on tasty food and refreshments available around the site before admiring the array of military vehicles including an authentic Spitfire. If you’re lucky enough you may even see one fly past during your visit.

Expect to see live entertainment from Hannah Pereria, Steve Howell, Now that’s Jive dancing group, Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq plus a whole host more.

Get your flags ready to wave in the train then hop aboard and take in the 10 miles of virtually unspoiled countryside.

Usual operating day fares apply.

The event is sponsored by Wightlink.
