23rd February 2016

Categories: News

After another successful year, Colwyn Bay's Forties Festival returns for its fifth year in April 2016!

We'll see firm favourites return for the weekend celebration  -  joined by some new faces!  As always, the festival will include live 40's style music, displays and entertainment. 

Guests are still to be confirmed for 2016, but in the past have included singers 'George Formby' and Lilli De Carlo, Llandudno Swing Band, 'Winston Churchill' and 'General Montgomery'. 

Popular attractions include a replica military plane, vehicles, weapons display, demonstrations, local food producers and more!

Again, the highlight of the weekend is the Ballroom Blitz Dance, a 1940's style dance  held on Saturday evening at Parc Eirias, with live music of the era.

Come and join us- dress up 40's style and enjoy the fun!

The weekend finale will be the fabulous Battle!
This energetic display is a must see  -  more details to follow.
