Salute to the 40s

16 Sep 2017 - 17 Sep 2017

Keep Calm and Carry On to one of Britain’s Best Vintage Festivals (as designated by the Daily Telegraph in 2014).

On 16 and 17 September 2017 visitors will be transported back in time as soon as they step foot into The Historic Dockyard Chatham.

The very best in 1940’s Entertainers, with singing and dancing throughout the day, Military and Home Front Displays, Air Displays, Vehicle Parades, Vintage Fashion, Vintage Fair and the spiffingly nostalgic atmosphere from start to finish.  Salute to the ‘40s is a wonderful day out for all ages and particularly those with a special interest in all things ‘vintage’.
