This event is organised by Brighouse Business Improvement District (BID) a non-for-profit organisation working to make improvements in the town centre. Driving footfall by organising such events to encourage you good folks to visit Brighouse.
The events could not happen without the help of our super volunteers who put in hours of work to make the events that we hold a success – we’d love to hear from you if you can spare any time to help.
We work with a select number of charities at our events and our particular charities at the 1940s weekend are:

As a 1940s event we find it important to represent all nationalities that took part in WW2. So, we do. It is important to remember that the war was fought from 2 sides, but also, Germany was not our only enemy. We respectfully demonstrate this, with educational stalls and presented as historical prisoners of war. We do not however condone SS Nazi uniforms and the like, and anyone wearing any will be asked to leave. Once again, as a historical re-enactment, we must represent troops from all countries, as do all 1940s or WW2 events across our nation. If you are a news organisation that needs some advice, just get in touch. We are happy to help.
