Grassington 1940s Weekend Comfirmed Dates:

Saturday 21st - Sunday 22nd September 2024


The Story of 2023s Weekend

Be taken back in time as you land in the heart of Yorkshire Dales experiencing scenes and the sounds of the 40s at every turn.

Take a walk around the famous cobbled streets, listening to the sounds of the 40s as you come across live performances including The Lancashire Belle, Paul & Melissa Harper, Steve Howell, The Alka Seltzer Sisters, Jeep Johnson and The Yorkshire Volunteers Corps of Drums (Saturday only), as you browse around Grassington’s fine selection of shops, cafes and public houses.


Carry on up towards the Town Hall and you will find vintage vehicles and vintage market stalls blending into the backdrop of Grassington’s fabulous cottages and landscape.

The Town Hall plays host to our weekends ticketed dances. Friday evenings music and dancing features The Rhythm Exchange Band, and The Alka Seltzer Sisters. Saturday sees the return of Echo 42 Big Band to Grassington's stage, and on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons between 2-4pm, we have the ever popular Afternoon Tea Dance led by Geoff and Maggie Forrest, including cake and a cuppa.
