A fun weekend filled with nostalgia to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force at Hemswell Antiques Centres.

Enjoy music throughout the weekend while you peruse 1940s RAF themed pitches. Dress to impress in your best 1940s gear - there are prizes for best dressed. Make sure you indulge the creative BBQ menu too and enjoy servings of Centennial Flight Pale Ale.

Are you a keen baker? Enter the RAF themed cake competition and be crowned “Star Baker” - win High Tea for two at the coffee shop. Cakes will be auctioned off at the end for the RAF100 Appeal charity. 

Explore the pre-war RAF Hemswell Station for original features, you may even be stood where Richard Todd played Guy Gibson in the 1954 film The Dam Busters.
