Lowther Pavilion hosted a 40s dinner dance on Saturday night and a traditional Tea Dance on Sunday.

    Hi we attended the 1940s weekend on Sunday and really enjoyed the day I brought my children and parents and we all had a fab time.
    Wondered if you had any of the stall holders contact details ? My son bought a gun but wanted the set and I have tried everything to find the other items but can now so if I could contact the stall holder might be able to get them through her. Thanks Paula
