Lytham 1940’s Weekend



We popped up to Lytham for the 1940’s Weekend, saw and met some amazing people, really great weekend once the weather picked up. Some fantastic performers too.


A Huge thank you and Well Done to Tim Dixon and the Team at Fylde Council for putting on such a stunning event. These events are exhausting for everyone putting them on, from bar staff, cleaning, First Aid crews, Audio people and everyone involved you should be really proud that it all went without a hitch.

If you see yourself in any images and you’d like a copy, hover over it and get the image number (ignoring the 5120 part) and email me at and I’ll endeavour to send them across

Hurricane Flyby

Sadly we either missed the flyby on Saturday or it was cancelled. Sunday’s fly by was spectacular as you can imagine, the Merlin engine note is so evocative with multiple passes, a Victory Roll too, but didn’t have a particularly long lens -just the 70-200 so sadly not the best shots
