Holt 1940s week­end

EDP Norfolk - - Inside -

North Nor­folk was trans­ported back in time for a cel­e­bra­tion of the style, cul­ture and char­ac­ter of the wartime era.

The third an­nual Holt 1940s Week­end, cel­e­brat­ing the wartime ef­forts of al­lied forces, was held in the town cen­tre on September 16 and 17.

The town’s shops and shop­keep­ers en­tered into the 40s spirit with eye-catch­ing win­dow dis­plays and ac­tiv­i­ties which in­cluded ev­ery­thing from a ‘ra­tion book trail’ to a pi­geon race. Hun­dreds of visi­tors were dressed up for the oc­ca­sion in out­fits, mil­i­tary uni­forms and fash­ions of the 40s, and there was also plenty of mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment from the era.

Pro­ceeds from the event were raised for the Walk­ing with the Wounded char­ity to help vul­ner­a­ble vet­er­ans and the event was also kindly sup­ported with some items on loan from the Muck­le­burgh col­lec­tion in nearby Wey­bourne.
