A VINTAGE and victory weekend returns to the farm at Tatton Park next month.

The commemorative event takes place on June 8 and 9, just days after the country marks a special historic anniversary.

Farm manager Jayne Chapman said: “Our Vintage and Victory weekend is especially exciting this year as the UK celebrates 80 years since D-Day, so what could be better than joining us to step back in time and remember Tatton in its wartime years.

“This was the place where the canopies of British parachute troops opened for the first time, heralding the birth of Britain's Airborne forces.

“Our tractor and trailer rides during this weekend are a great opportunity to visit the war memorial within the parkland honouring those forces.”

Visitors can meet costumed characters such as Churchill and the Home Guard and listen to their stories of wartime Britain.

Land Army girls will demonstrate how to make do and mend.

People can find out what it was like by helping with their daily chores, potato riddling, butter making and cleaning harnesses.

Vintage vehicles will be on display.

There will be a chance to find out how farm workers at Tatton Dale survived during rationing.

If you fancy stepping back in time, why not put on your glad rags and do the Lindy Hop.

The lambing shed will be transformed into a party barn with live music for all ages from talented 1940s singer, Rachel Mercer, as well as local choirs, Knutsford Star and Knutsford Beats.

Vintage stalls and refreshments will be available while you reminisce with classic songs of the period.
