AFTER a forced break for Covid, Ingleton's successful 1940s weekend is back this summer with plenty planned for all ages.

This year's event will be over Saturday and Sunday, July 2 and 3. The event has been running for 13 years and this one, the first for three years, will be bigger and better than ever and is all free to attend.

The road gets closed at mid morning and the whole village turns back in time to the wonderful 1940s era with shopkeepers dressing up their shop fronts and people dressing in the fashion of the day.

Ilkley toy museum will be attending with some toys from the era which will be displayed inside the church. There will be children’s games, a vintage hair dresser, military displays in the park, classic cars and military vehicles. A living statue of a spitfire pilot will likely be surprising a few people around the village.
