British Sign Language Saturday and Sunday daytimes with Tony and Carol once again from CoSign Blackpool (you’ll recognize Tony from his many Lytham Festival and Lytham Hall Last Night of the Proms appearances and The 40s Weekend is delighted to have him and Carol back again for a 3rd time).
There will be a 2 minutes silence to the fallen on Sunday morning at 11am in the main marquee.
Plus, Winston Churchill with his wartime speeches in Clifton Square Sat 14:15, Sun 14:15
Dancing this year will be on the Mussel Tanks by the Promenade instead of Clifton Square. Given Lytham has done fantastic to be in the national In Bloom finals there is a temporary In Bloom installation giving insufficient space for dancing space without damage to the historic mosaic, so for this year The 40s Weekend revert to plan B on the Mussel Tanks which is a great space.
Plus, there’s two evenings of pre-booked ticketed entertainment in the Marquee on Friday (Colin Bourdiec, Gary Walker, Claire Louise, Jonny Victory) and Saturday (Kalamazoo Dance Band).
