The famous Haworth 1940s Weekend will take place on Saturday and Sunday, May 17 and 18 and will be raising funds again for the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA). This charity offers lifelong support to our forces and their families, including current serving personnel. The theme this year is the D Day Landings as it is 70 years since this momentous operation, and the event will include a number of talks and an exhibition in the work of code breaking centre Bletchley Park. Haworth will have its own Station X. Haworth Central Park will play host to a number of re-enactors and living exhibitions, together with battle skirmishes. The Parsonage car park will be home to ‘Y Station’, a listening station receiving messages as well as the popular Spitfire plane on display together with a collection of other interesting exhibitions and stalls retailing a multitude of items. A new item of interest will be Church Tower at St Michael and All Angels – there is a tribute to paratrooper John Steel and those who liberated the town of St Mere Eglise, Normandy. The biggest attractions, though, are a Dakota flypast, vehicles of all types from the period, and the re-enactors in full 1940s dress. For more information, visit haworth1940sweekend.co.uk.
