There’s always plenty to see and do at the event, and who can resist browsing the many stalls – and maybe picking up a souvenir, especially if its ‘Good Yorkshire Bargain!’.
The whole town will step back in time to the 1940 and will take place in various locations spread across the town, but mainly split between the main Town Square and Thornborough Hall – where, this year, Louise Lewis Events are delighted to be presenting the very successful “Home Front Vintage Fair”.
Here, there will be around 15 wonderful vintage stands available within the Hall itself – and also more outside in the grounds too. Last year everyone enjoyed dancing to the super music provided and also the great vintage tea room which was a great success. Lots of other activities at the Hall too including bomb disposal!! Get your de-mob suit out of mothballs, run that pencil up the back of your leg and come and join us…
A fabulous fair of pure nostalgia with no reproductions and a date line of pre-1955.
The stands at Thornborough Hall are all organised by Louise Lewis Events. www.louiselewis.co.uk

The Market Place is where most of the action takes place and there you will find a range of military and vintage vehicles, along with entertainment from the era, including Music and Dancing, and a host of stalls offering everything that goes to make the day so very special.
