VISITORS to Tutbury Castle took a step back to wartime Britain this bank holiday weekend, during a 1940s event at the site.
Hundreds of people braved the rain to head to the medieval castle and soak up the atmosphere over the three-day period.
Re-enactors from all sides of the second world war conflict came together to dress up and show off their military paraphernalia during the annual event.
Castle curator Lesley Smith said: “We had people dressed as soldiers from Britain, Germany, France, Canada, America – everywhere.
“We even had an English bobby from the 1940s, which was great.
“It all went very well. It was a very nice patriotic weekend and I’m pleased with how it went.”
There was live wartime music and dancing, and a swing dance on Sunday night went down a treat. Vintage vehicles and other things were also on display.
A flag ceremony took place to honour those who lost their lives at war.
