THOUSANDS of people enjoyed the sun and embraced the spirit of the 1940s at the weekend.
Bletchley Park’s annual ‘Forties Family Festival,’ which took place on Saturday and Sunday, featured a range of wartime displays and re-enactment groups, Forties news reels in the Enigma cinema and lectures about life at Bletchley Park during the war.
The two day event also included a host of WW2 displays from the likes of Sittingbourne Home Front Living History Group and visits from Field Marshal Montgomery and Winston Churchill.
A 1940s disco, complete with lindy hoppers, and a fashion show based on the era also took place.
A selection of evocative wartime cinema reels were shown in Bletchley Park’s wartime Enigma cinema, while visitors young and old enjoyed taking part in a craft workshop and having a go at making a wartime toy.
A series of talks, including one on what what life was like as a wartime evacuee, also took place.
