Ramsey is taking a step back in time for a 1940’s themed event.
he weekend, running August 16 and 17, will send visitors back in time to seven decades ago and allow them to see what life was like in the 1940’s.
The weekend will take place at The Camp, on Wood Lane in Ramsey. The site was once the area headquarters for a searchlight and anti aircraft battery during the Second World War and has since been refurbished by a team of volunteers for the weekend.
Throughout the day, there will be various activities on offer such as a funfair, dance exhibitions and demonstrations in the Big Top tent and a range of stalls.
Performances at the event will include Lola Lamour who is Britain’s most authentic 1940’s singer, singer Adam Hoffman and the Caledonian Pipe Band.
