The event, which is hosted by Newport Pagnell Town Council, traditionally attracts large crowds and many people dress up in vintage clothes for the occasion. There are prizes for the best period outfits.

Memorabilia of the period will be on display, including war games, early radios and computers, and a living history museum.

There will be entertainment by the well-loved May Blossom and some new bands to encourage people to dance in the street.

Programmes can be picked up from the Town Council offices from May 16 for £1 each.

Parking is at Riverside Meadow.
