PHOTOS: Leyburn 1940s Weekend goes with a swing

Thousands of people visited Leyburn over the weekend for the annual 1940s weekend.

The event celebrated its tenth anniversary this year.

There was music, singing, dancing, stalls and a large number of period vehicles including military vehicles, farm machinery, buses, vintage cars and steam traction engines.

Many visitors arrived in costume and the town’s shops got into the spirit with displays and bunting.

The weather was poor on Saturday morning with heavy rain threatening to dampen spirits but the sun arrived by midday.
