Themed High Street

Come & get in the spirit of 1945

Red, White and Blue will be the colours of the day, with bunting and flags, the centre of Lee will be taken back to the 1940's.

 

Feeling nostalgic? Why not get in the spirit and feel free to come dressed in 1940's civilian dress or military uniform. There are prizes for the best dressed, women, man, boy and girl!

 

Whilst period dress is nice to have, it’s not essential as because your company is more important to us throughout the day from the parade through to the evening musical picnic, so please come along and enjoy the music, stalls, food & drink vendors and dancing; perhaps the soldiers may even have some silk stockings!

If you are a stall trader, food or drink vendor and you would like to have a pitch then please send through your details to request a booking form .
