The North Thoresby 1940s Event happens every year on the Sunday and Monday of the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Upwards of 5,000 people visit the event each year. Military and civilian re-enactors intermingle with visitors. Enjoy the sounds of the 1940's and swing dancing in the village square. Take a trip on a vintage bus, horse and trap and steam train. Browse the many vintage and craft stalls and take a break in the village NAAFI. An evening theme dance will take place on the Saturday and there will be a 'Great British Quiz' on the Saturday evening of the weekend prior to the event.


Outdoor trade stands available.

The 2019 event is kindly sponsored by Prestige Auctions Grimsby. The event this year will feature an auction of vintage and retro items held by Prestige on the Monday and they will be holding a free valuation and viewing day on the Sunday.
