Get Ready For Summer – 2015

Now In It’s 8th Year!

Leyburn 1940s Weekend is now in its 8th year – and it’s more popular than ever. And everyone is working hard to grow the event make 2015 even better than previous years.


More Space

This year we’ve got even more space in the town square, with the addition of Commercial square. We’re planning on devoting the whole square to displaying as many vintage/military vehicles as we can – so if you know anyone who’s got something special to show off, get them to get in touch via the vintage vehicles page.


Homefront Vintage Fair

The addition of the Thornborough Hall venue last year was a great success so we’ll once again be holding the Homefront Vintage Fair there along with all the other re-enactment attractions and the ‘Pop-Up TeaRoom’ Dancing.


Dancing – Night and Day

The ever popular Evening Dances will take place at the same venues as last year – with Friday night at the Bolton Arms and Saturday at The School. Tickets should be available by the time you read this, and they’re in high demand and we’re limited to strict numbers by the size of the venues – so don’t delay, and get your application in as soon as you can.


Military Displays

TOSH (The Old School House) will also be packed with interesting displays thanks to both the Green Howards and the Catterick Historical Group.

Camping facilities will be provided, as ever, at the Rugby Club just outside the town.


New Flyer


To help with publicity there’s a brand spanking new leaflet, so why not download and print a copy to display or give to your friends.
