Experience 1940s train travel and relive the hustle and bustle of a countryside railway station where wartime activities collide with every day rural life at Isle of Wight Steam Railways 1940s Experience.

Be wowed by the stunning female group “Company B” singing spankingly good songs from the swing era or jitterbug along with “Now That’s Jive” dance group. To complete the day there is also entertainment from “Steve Howell, Hannah Perera & Thomas Benjamin wild Esq” who will be performing with his ukulele.

A fashion show organised by ‘The House of Foxy’ will give you the opportunity to see the fashion of the times and see how much it differs to modern day fashion.

Get hands on and try the hairstyles and fashions of the day, tuck into 1940s food in the refreshment rooms and ‘T’ Junction kiosk, and sample an ale from The Spitfire Bar!

With an array of civilian and military vehicles, this is your chance to get up close and personal to the fantastic vehicles.

This nostalgic event is set to show the best of these extraordinary times, so book your tickets now.
