Step Back In Time This Weekend With Lytham’s 40’s Extravaganza

Saturday 20th August and Sunday 21st August sees the most welcome return of the fabulous, nostalgic Lytham 40s weekend.

The sights, sounds and atmosphere of the 1940s era are brilliantly revived with a wonderful weekend of singing, dancing, weapons displays, historic vehicles, military charities, vintage traders and much more.

The big entertainment marquee situated on Lytham Green has free entertainment from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days. The amazing line-up features Winston Churchill’s rousing wartime speeches, Colin Bourdiec as George Formby and making their Lytham debut The Bluebirds, plus the popular Fylde Ukulele Network.  Paula Marie and Lytham Favourite Lancashire Belle return to entertain once again. And, back by popular demand, there’s also the chance to learn to dance with Anthony and Steph, whilst the Re-Invintaged Fashion Show faces the spotlight on both days. To add to the fun, there will also be a licensed forties bar in the main marquee

To kick off the weekend, a special Friday night show sees a fun evening of song and laughter to start the annual Lytham 1940s weekend.  Full details of this ticketed event are featured on the poster below.

  1. Dear Sirs, you may be interested to know that you have a company operation out of 28 Orchard Road, Lytham St Annes, name of Pockex Tax, who, in my case, accessed my income tax account at H M Rev and Customs and manage to get them to transfer an overpayment of income tax to there account and claim that they had recovered a PPI tax payment. To date i have received mails saying that a cheque has been sent, not once but twice, as well as mails stating that they will send the monies. It would appear that a good many others are in the same boat with this company. Please warn people in your area about this scam and that they should be careful.

  2. Although it was well attended, this year’s 40’s weekend was a huge disappointment. The WW2 battle re-enactment was cancelled. This had always been the main attraction and highlight of this event.
    The reason… to not cause offense to Ukrainian refugees.
    It had never been cancelled previously in case it caused offense to our own WW2 veterans or their relatives. Why now?
    Although, I hate to say it, it is yet another ‘woke’ example of how we are easily ‘offended’ on behalf of others.
    In this instance, it ruined the weekend, which became a static, rather boring event.
    What a shame.
