Salute To The 40s Returns to Chatham Dockyard This Weekend

It’s been a fab year for vintage events and I’ve been to more this year than ever before. With the festival season coming to a close, there is one more big event on my Calendar for September. Salute to the 40s will be coming to Chatham Dockyard next weekend and I absolutely cannot wait to check it out.

I’m really looking forward to the air raid experience all the other recreations. The event has lots of focus on history with lots of activities for the whole family. I’ll be taking my kids with me as I think they’ll love it too.

Of course no vintage event would be complete without a bit of shopping! There will be a great selection of traders, seeing both original vintage and reproduction. I can’t wait to look for some treasures to take home. After all the history and shopping there are plenty of food traders and places to eat on-site.
