An East Lancashire town will be transported back 80 years this weekend as their 1940s themed event brings a nostalgic charm to the town.

Padiham on Parade, taking place this Saturday and Sunday, June 29-30 will offer a unique chance to step back in time and celebrate the culture and style of the 1940s.

The weekend’s line-up features live retro performers from the marquee and DJ Dapper Dan on the town hall plaza, as well as vintage attire and classic cars.

The line-up will also feature lots of exciting activities such as Punch & Judy, wartime crafts in the library, vintage bus rides to Gawthorpe Hall, Padiham Archives Museum, dance performances, and funfair rides.

Attendees can enjoy a selection of food and drink while browsing through stalls selling retro memorabilia and handmade crafts.

The event continues on Sunday with a spectacular display of military personnel and a remembrance parade from Memorial Park to the Town Hall.

The Padiham on Parade event is organised by the Padiham on Parade Committee and supported by Padiham Town Council, Burnley Council, and sponsorship from local businesses.
