When an opportunity comes calling to step back into the 40’s for me there was no hesitation, a time of seamed stockings, glamorous women, booted and suited men alongside the uniforms & war. This is a walking, talking, all singing and dancing, art form, and one which was so well acted you were so there.
So whether your interests lie in World War II or indeed just the forties, it was a grand day out for all the family or even a whole weekend for some. Bandstands, make up, tailored suits, the new look, alongside the land girls, G.I’s, Australians, Winston Churchill, Evacuee children, the Nazi soldiers, jiving in the park, it was a great day out! A chance for everyone to imagine what life must have been like. Quite surreal, in many ways a little freaky and scary as it became so realistic.
