EVERY year for one weekend in August, Ramsey takes a trip back in time as it returns to the 1940s.

This year is no different, with the sights and sounds of the Forties taking over the weekend of August 21 and 22.

The highlight of this trip down memory lane is Saturday’s 1940s dance, held in one of RAF Upwood’s old aircraft hangars. There you can dance the night away to an authentic big band sound.

The daytime will see a procession of vintage vehicles, living history displays, stalls, Forties fashion shows and other special events.
