1940's Weekend
Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May 2024
Tenterden Town Station

A whole weekend of pure nostalgia recreating the sights, sounds and fashions of the 1940s
Early booking is recommended for this popular event! Trains will be departing every 45mins from 10.30am - with 8 departures per day! Take a step back in time with a visit to the K&ESR - experience the 40s lifestyle as the railway turns back the clock to wartime Britain. Why not join in the fun and come in your own 1940s finery!

Enjoy live music at Tenterden and Bodiam, vintage stalls, 40s hairstylist and period civilian and military vehicles. Keep a look out for 'Viv the Spiv' with his black market goods! Collect your free identity card before immersing yourself in the nostalgic 40s atmosphere created by the re-enactors, performers and authentic 1940s displays.

A variety of attractions are planned for each station. The Lindy Hoppers and 1940s singers will be performing throughout the weekend.

Hangar Dance Saturday Night across the rails at the Old Dairy Tap Room from 5pm. Rocket Rod and Lookout Lance Swing DJ's will be entertaining you for FREE, with ALL donations going to KESR Educational Charity
