Sheringham 1940s Weekend

Friday 13 to Sunday 15 September 2019
See website for programme

As the North Norfolk Coast begins to move out of Covid-19 lockdown, and tourism businesses re-open, more planned events are taking place.  These are just listings, so please follow links and check with organisers of events before assuming events are running.

Founded by the North Norfolk Railway, the 1940s Weekend has grown into one of the biggest events of its type in the country.

It began as an event on the Stations of the NNR. Such was its popularity with so many of the towns businesses and traders getting whole heartedly behind it, that it soon grew to encompass the whole of Sheringham Town Centre.


Fantastic lineup of musical entertainment for you this year. The Skyliner Big Band, Sarah Mai, The Knightingales, AndyAV8 Vintage DJ, The King Size Papas, Timescape & DJ Drive Time.


Wartime rations, tea, together with spam sandwiches, from the NAAFI at Weybourne.

A Cup of Char and a Wad from the Institute tea rooms at Holt.


Jitterbug dancers, re-enactment groups, a collection of 1940s vehicles and veteran and vintage bicycles.


The excitement, fear, hope, and bravery of the Blitz.


The golden age of steam.

All in all, experience a very British weekend!

Cromer Carnival will be putting together event listings for each of the days of Sheringham The 1940s Weekend, if you are hosting or know of anything that is happening, please contact them through their Facebook page so that it can be included - Cromer Carnival (Offical).
