We are super excited to be bringing our vintage jewellery to the Black Country Living Museum for their annual 1940’s weekend.

Discover the ways that people stayed stylish while doing their bit for King and country with make do & mend displays, as well as unravelling the story of utility clothing. Plus, go deeper into the history of service uniform and explore the stories of different occupations from the home-front to the frontline.

Enjoy 1940s entertainment with the starring acts! Sing along to the hits of the day with The Bluebird Belles, put your best foot forward and dance to the sounds of Kalamazoo Dance Band, and hear the famous tunes of George Formby played to perfection by singer Joe Thomas.

Plus, find out how the people of this region united against difficult odds to support the war effort both at home and at the front. Visit the colliery to learn the story of the Bevin boys, uncover the contributions of wartime volunteers with our ARP warden, and head into the houses to discover how creativity and good spirits helped people to overcome the challenges of food rationing.

For those looking to extend their weekend there is a special We’ll Meet Again Evening on the Saturday night – featuring an exclusive show from the D-Day Darlings, as well as other vintage musical acts like Kalamazoo Dance Band.
