SATURDAY 10th & SUNDAY 11th JUNE 2023


The stunning grounds of Grantham House come to life as we showcase the spirit of 1940's Britain with an action packed weekend of period and vintage displays and activities, showing life through the war years and the years of optimism that followed.

Across the gardens and the house, there will be a diverse range of attractions including: vintage vehicles, reenactors and living history groups, dancing and music, trade and craft stalls, a vintage tea room and bar, family activities, vintage hairstylist and fashion, and a Saturday evening live band and dancing.

Visitors are encouraged to come along dressed in their best vintage attire, and take part in our fashion parade for the chance of being crowned as the days 'Best Dressed' person.


Join us from 7pm on Saturday 10th June 2023 for a fantastic evening of live entertainment and dancing at Grantham Forties Festival. Put on your best vintage dress and dance the night away or relax to the sounds in true vintage style!

Fabulous music from the supported by our resident MC's, will keep the atmosphere alive and your feet tapping, and a licensed bar will provide drinks and snacks to keep your spirits high.

The evening dance is a highlight of the weekend and is sure to be popular. Tickets are £15 each and should be purchased in advance by clicking the link below (and can be purchased individually or as a combined deal with a day entry ticket).
