Spend the weekend in wartime Britain at Black Country Living Museum’s highly popular 1940s Weekend.
For an entire weekend, the Museum will be transformed as vintage vehicles, 40s civilians, army personnel, and the sound of air raid sirens fill the streets!
The event is set across the Museum’s award-winning 26 acres of recreated period houses and shops. Identity card in hand, you’ll step through military checkpoints and back in time as you explore an electric wartime atmosphere of entertainment, food and fashion. Stroll through vintage memorabilia markets, meet ‘40s characters, enjoy ‘make do and mend’ workshops and experience air raid scenarios throughout the weekend.
Please note: if you are planning to visit us for the whole weekend, there will be a break between the Saturday daytime event, ending at 5pm and the evening event, beginning at 6.30pm. Visitors will be asked to leave the Museum site for this hour and a half.
