It was a day of nostalgia in King’s Lynn as the clock turned back to the 1940s.

The town welcomed hundreds of visitors to its annual Life on the Home Front day on Sunday.

Music filled the Tuesday Market Place, where people queued to go down the town’s hidden air raid shelter.

Meanwhile, in the town hall at the Saturday Market Place, people danced, enjoyed cake and viewed at memorabilia.

More than 300 visitors went to the Stories of Lynn museum where a “German prisoner of war” interacted with the public.

A Winston Churchill character and people in 1940s-style clothing could also be seen around the town centre.

Over at Lynn Museum, visitors learned rationing and children visited the sweet shop with their ration coupons and learned about “make do and mend”.

The free event was organised by Norfolk Museums Service on the behalf of West Norfolk Council.

Graham Middleton, cabinet member for business development, said it was the most popular Forties Lynn yet.

He said: “Lynn’s wartime history is fascinating, and this event brought that history to life in a really fun and informative way.”
