Nostalgia event breaks

Nostalgia Weekends are all the rage and have boomed in popularity across the UK in recent years as towns up and down the country turn back the clock to celebrate key moments in British history.

From the British wartime effort of the 40s, to the Swinging Sixties and Groovy Seventies, you can celebrate your favourite decades with National Holidays.

Of course, the most popular nostalgia events are centred on the country’s wartime effort and provide a chance to recapture the make do and mend spirit of the time.

Nowhere creates the authentic atmosphere of 1940s quite like the Yorkshire towns of Haworth, Grassington and Brighouse.

Enjoy live re-enactments of key battles, grab a piece of history at the stalls selling wartime paraphernalia, wander around the military vehicles and aircraft on display, learn the art of Lindy Hop Dancing and sing along to wartime favourites.

You can even hear rallying speeches from the monarch of the time George VI and wartime Prime Ministers Winston Churchill and Neville Chamberlain.

Why not add enter the spirit yourself by dressing up in your finest wartime gear?

For a wartime weekend with a difference you can travel on vintage carriages of the North York Moors Steam Railway or East Lancashire Railway and see the quaint stations of the heritage line transformed to perfectly replicate the war period.

North York Moors Steam railway also provides the chance to celebrate the seventies at its 70s Spectacular, a fun-filled weekend featuring live glam rock music and classic cars from the period. Don your flares and have a groovy time!
