VISITORS can step back in time at the Black Country Living Museum's 1940s Weekend.

Vintage vehicles, army personnel and iconic warplanes will fill the streets and skies on Saturday and Sunday (July 14 and 15).

With an identity card in hand, families can step through military checkpoints and back in time as they explore an electric wartime atmosphere of entertainment, food and fashion.

People can also experience air raid scenarios and, in true 1940s style, a chance to listen to some of Churchill’s stirring speeches performed live by a re-enactor.

Usual opening hours and general admission prices apply for this event.

The museum's UnChained Pass is valid for daytime visits, however it is not valid for the evening event which has sold out.
