Appleby 40s Festival 2018 // July 2018

The 14th of July will welcome the first 1940s Festival in Appleby. 
A day filled with music and nostalgia. The festival will run from 1pm until 8pm.

Join the event on Facebook

There’s something for everyone at Appleby Festival, a community event that commemorates the RAF100 anniversary and an era of community spirit. There will be craft ales on sale from Fiskerton Brewery (along with other tipples), music from Marlaina Rube, May Blossom, George Formby (Colin Bourdiec), The Washboard Resonators, Room 21 and the the Axholme Sisters.

We have military and civilian exhibits, huge model aircraft and model trucks which will enthrall all ages.

Award winning children’s entertainers ‘Non-stop Kids’ will be providing magic, puppetry and other wonderful things for the younger (and quite probably older!) visitors during the day.

Come and sing-a-long, put on your dancing shoes, meet friends and make memories.

Visit the little exhibition at St Bartholomews Church, pop in for a cream tea at the Keb and browse the scarecrows.

Wristbands to the festival are now on sale from the following outlets –

ContainerKing, Rowland Road, Scunthorpe,

Vendemia, Moorwell Road, Scunthorpe,

The Cooperative, Market Place, Winterton,

The Keb, Haytons Lane, Appleby.

The Bank Hair and Beauty Salon, Brigg, North Lincolnshire.

Important announcement 📣

Due to some visitors having difficulty with buying tickets online we have taken the brave decision to sell a limited number of wristbands on the day on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

To guarantee entry to the event it might be wise to reserve them by either messaging us here or by emailing us at

We don’t want anyone to be disappointed 👍However, if you can book online via Eventbrite and our ‘event’ page, not only will you be guaranteed entry but you will receive a free strip of raffle tickets on arrival!We hope that helps? ❤️

So, come along, share some memories and make some more 🍎🐝❤️

See you soon!😁
