The South Devon 1940s Festival, which has previously been known as South Devon Railway 1940s Weekend, has been held at Buckfastleigh Station for many years, and is one the highlights of our year.

The show has grown and developed greatly and now boasts a large amount of displays, vehicles, trade stands, entertainment and atmosphere that you won’t find anywhere else! Working closely with the Devon Area Military Vehicle Trust and Miss Ivy Events we are sure that you will experience a fun filled day out that will transport you back to the 1940s.

To see the latest news and for more details about the event see the South Devon 1940s Festival Website

Event Date: 
Saturday, July 1, 2017 (All day) to Sunday, July 2, 2017 (All day)
Short description: 
Stand by your beds! The railway returns to the 1940s with military vehicles, live period music and displays. We'd love you to come in period uniform or civilian clothing - don't forget your ration book.
