Pickering War Weekend October 2010

Well I just don't know where the time goes, it doesn't seem that long since I was writing about last years Pickering War Weekend, which is a favourite event for guests here at Valley View Farm.

Revisit the past and wartime England with the The Pickering War Weekend from Friday 15th October to Sunday 17th October 2010. Visit Pickering and the surrounding villages to learn about how we used to lived in the 1940’s.
Events taking place in Pickering and on the NYMR include:
  • street parties and displays,
  • special exhibitions at Beck Isle Museum, North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway and the Kirk Theatre.
  • Villages along the Railway line will also be holding events too.
The event begins at noon on Friday when the flag is raised in Pickering and from then on many visitors arrive in period costume, so why not be one of them and join in the fun.

Saturday sees processions in the High Street, military vehicles, singers, bands and 40's style evening dances.

On the Friday and Saturday evenings from 7.30pm -11pm there will be nostalgic dancing and fun to the music of Ava Disco with DJ Lynne (back by popular demand).

The event will include original soundtracks of events that took place during those World War II years and dancing to nostalgic music for swing plus old time favourites such as the valeta, St Bernard Waltz, military two step plus quicksteps and foxtrots.

The railway stations are taken over with Levisham becoming occupied France and Goathland defended by The Home Guard. It is a popular and fun event which is growing each year.

So why not make your base one of our Valley View Farm Cottages as you and your family are transported back to the War time years of the 1940's.
