Leyburn will be transported back to the war years this weekend for the annual 1940s event.

The Market Place will becomes an arena for all things 1940s – with music, singing, dancing, stalls and all manner of vehicle  including military vehicles, farm machinery, buses and vintage cars.

Thornborough Hall will be the site for the vintage tea party, with reenactors, arts and crafts stalls and refreshments.

There will be a Friday night dance at the Bolton Arms, with the Saturday night dance at The Wensleydale School.

Parking is available in the 1940s car parks near Tennants on the A684 and the auction mart on the A6108.

The cost of parking will be £5 per vehicle and everyone who pays for parking will receive a wristband giving them free access to the park and ride provided over the weekend by The Wensleydale Omnibus.

Those who do not require car parking can still take advantage of travelling around on the old double decker bus for £2.
