1940s weekend Sheringham North Norfolk 2014

1940s weekend Sheringham North Norfolk 2014 on Sept 20th & 21st 2014 was the start of another weekend with the Sheringham North Norfolk Railway aka Poppy Line and the town of Sheringham putting on yet another stunning event.

The streets of Sheringham resounded to the sound of 1940s jive music, the tones of the Pathe news and BBC radio announcers, the recognisable voice of Sir Winston Churchill, as well as the majority of the attendees all dressed up in the costumes of the era.

For me, as a North Norfolk based photographer, it is a photographer’s dream. The participation of the enactors, members of the public, from all over the country, just offer superb photographic opportunities. It is not surprising that it attracts photographers from far and near. People just want to be photographed in their outfits

The 1940s weekend in Sheringham North Norfolk 2014, attracts, it is estimated over 50,000 people into the town over the two days.

I just hope that I have captured the ambiance and fun of the event as a whole.

Please feel free to add comments to either the post or the photographs – I actually encourage you!!
