1940’s Weekend – The East Lancashire Railway

It’s time to hop on board the Chattanooga Choo Choo as the East Lancashire Railway gets set to journey back in time to the fabulous forties this Spring Bank Holiday Weekend!

This award-winning event is back for its nineteenth year with more attractions and activities than ever before. Entertainment includes 1940s singers and musicians, battle scenarios, vintage and military vehicle displays, exhibitions, living history camps, forties fashion stalls, afternoon tea dances, working Spitfire, VE Day Concert and unlimited travel on heritage steam engines.

The 1940s Weekend takes place across the length of the railway and tickets can be purchased from Bury, Heywood, Ramsbottom and Rawtenstall stations on the day. Visitors that already have their ticket can start their day out from any of the above stations. For more information on how to reach the East Lancashire Railway visit their “Getting Here” page.

It’s a long road to Tipperary so why not stop at ‘The Coach’ along the way to get into the swing of things at this incredibly popular vintage spectacular. As our team get in on all that 40’s action, why not dig out that polka dot dress, wax that moustache and put on your dancing shoes for a weekend of all singing, all dancing, all action fun.
