Key Vintage Fairs & 1940s Re-enactment Events Around The UK

Mark & Helene

As everything seems to be back up & running as normal, we have our fingers crossed that we'll be able to attend some more vintage nostalgia events this year. As dates are confirmed up and down the country we will do our best to include them on this calendar for you to share.

And as always, feel free to help us find more! We are always happy to add any new ones, so if you are an events organiser let us know the details by email helene@revivalvintage.co.uk and we will slot it in!

Can you email me details of events in Lancashire, Cumbria and Yorkshire that are still going ahead because many 1940s events, seem to have been cancelled due to the war in Ukraine.

Thanks, particulaly events which included music and dancing.

Thanks

Hi, would it be possible to include the National Emergency Services Museum’s event ‘A Wartime Christmas’ on 11th and 12th December?
