Following the succcess of the Brighouse 1940s Weekend, Queensbury will be transported to a bygone era with the village’s first 1940s day on Saturday.

With brass bands, army vehicles, stalls, food and refreshments as well as evening entertainment from 1940s tribute act Kitty La Mare, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

Sue Dickerson, one of the organisers of the festival, said that the idea came about after the village’s 150th anniversary celebrations last year.

“It really brought all the community together and it left us with a real feel-good factor,” she said.

“People are really looking forward to it and I think it will be a really good day.”

The action will begin at around 11.30am and will centre around Chapel Street.

Kitty La Mare’s performance will take place at the Conservative Club - the proceeds of which will go towards the new Queensbury Performing Arts group, which hopes to stage its first pantomime next year.

Tickets for the evening entertainment are £5 and the price includes a light supper.
