The 1940s Spirit Lives On

Never A Dull Moment

Make the Most of the 40's

Never fool yourself into thinking the 1940’s is a bygone era, on the contrary the spirit of the 40’s is very much alive with an active vibrant social calendar.

Not Just a Collection of Vintage Memorabilia

From air shows and full scale re-enactments to annual period events there is never a dull weekend on the 1940’s scene. We are in an age of living history and there are groups of dedicated enthusiasts safeguarding our heritage for future generations.

 Plenty Going On

Harry & Edna on the WirelessOur Facebook events page carries a snapshot of “What’s on” in the 1940’s scene but this is only the tip of the iceberg and a brief search will find groups covering all aspects of interest from fashion to social gatherings. These groups welcome new members with open arms offering support and advice creating active online communities.

Our experience of the 1940’s scene quickly taught us new material was constantly still being produced across the board. In our particular field there are artists still recording and a number of independents such as Harry and Edna who produce their own weekly show for airing on Period Radio Stations such as ours.


Harry and Edna on the Wireless
Thursdays and Sundays 8:00pm – 9:00pm

You can listen to Harry & Edna on the Wireless featuring the current British vintage scene, complete with guests & tip top gramophone music.
