Kelham Island turns back clock to 1940s

The spirit of the 1940s Home Front is being revived in Sheffield next weekend as WW2 celebrations come to Kelham Island Museum.

There will be a street party atmosphere as performers in period costume recreate the buzz of wartime life.

And visitors are encouraged to dress up and join in the fun, which includes live music, wartime stories, vintage stalls and military vehicles.

Visitors can experience re-enactment of an air raid, history bus tours, military canoe demonstrations and a Sunday afternoon tea dance.

Hundreds of people are expected to join in the event, now in its fifth year, at Kelham Island on July 12-13. Entry is £5; under-16s free.
