The Haworth 1940s weekend is a fabulous event which celebrates and commemorates the 1940s – and, being situated on Haworth’s Main Street in the heart of all the action, it’s always the busiest weekend of the year for us! The whole village gets into character by dressing up (including all of our staff) and visitors and locals really get into the spirit with flags lining the streets and people in military uniforms.
It’s amazing to see people from all over the country coming into the café dressed up in fantastic outfits traditional of the 1940s. There is always plenty of activities on offer in the village over the weekend, including getting a 1940s makeover, live band music from the era and classic cars on show.
This year’s event was bigger and better than ever, spanning three days 15-17 May 2015 and we turned our new bigger and better café into a Second World War themed eatery for the occasion. Thankfully, the food wasn’t rationed but our staff, who were dressed up to the nines in red lippy and dungarees, made sure the troops were fed and watered with a range of healthy, tasty treats on offer!
