A NEW exhibition at the Imperial War Museum (IWM) in Duxford will see you heading Back to the Forties.
On Sunday September 29, guests will be able to time-travel back to Britain on the Second World War Home Front.
If visitors come dolled up in 1940’s gear they will also benefit from two-for-one entry – and there will be a best dressed competition with experts looking for authenticity.
On the day people will be able to meet a range of wartime characters including Land Girls, a char lady, a wartime bobby, a member of the Home-Guard and civilians going about their day-to-day life.
But you will have to be careful of charmers trying to get you to buy goods from the black market.
Sing-along to some of the best 1940s songs as entertainers Marina Mae, Nina Rae and Pete Wayre will be there on the day.
Also learn some nifty dance moves from their lindy hop dancers.
