The sights and sounds of the 1940s will be recreated when the annual Rauceby War Weekend returns this Bank Holiday Weekend.
The event, which this year is being held for a seventh time, runs from Saturday-Monday, August 29-31, off the A153 at South Rauceby.
Proceeds will go to the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, the Royal British Legion, and Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Organisers have booked a large marquee for a 1940s ‘Victory Ball’ for 300 people on the Saturday night. It is a ticket-only event, with admission priced at £15.
The marquee will also be used for various activities during the weekend, including fashion shows and dancing lessons.
The weekend will also feature: living history displays, re-enactors, military and classic cars, stalls, staged battles, and a military band, and flypasts from The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
There is also entertainment for children, including a fun fair and participation events such as ‘grenade throwing’.
Admission is priced at £6 per person per day, but is free for children under 12 and veterans.
There are also discounts available for booking in advance and for two or three-day passes.
