Padiham on Parade 1940’s Weekend

Padiham winds back the clock, taking you right back to 1940s and war time period.

This fun 1940s themed weekend has lots going on for young and old alike, and there are few places left with such a historic town centre still largely untouched by post-war modernisation projects. The event is held on the weekend of 30th June to 1st July. Lots to see and do with an opportunity to dress up in stylish 1940s clothes and learn about history during the wartime period!

Go back in time with 1940s songs being sung live in the Dance Marquee. Visit our goods stalls to view collectable and vintage items which are for sale.
Look out for the local bobby keeping an eye out for spivs, and the Home Guard who will be patrolling the street.

We hope to see you there.
