On the 22nd & 23rd July 2018, Leyburn Hosts the annual 1940’s weekend. This fantastic weekend of nostalgia is supported both locally and from far afield.


The Market Place in the centre of town becomes an arena for all things 1940s – with music, singing, dancing, stalls and all manner of vehicles: including military vehicles, farm machinery, buses, vintage cars…


We have been welcoming visitors onto Akebar for many years who have been attending this event, we are on a local bus route that can take you directly to the festival.


Here’s a link to the website if you want some more info on Leyburn and the 1940’s weekend.
