1940's Knees Up At The Brewhouse Yard

Earlier in the year, my good friend and fellow member of The Vintage Vixens, Amy, and I went along to the 1940s knees-up. This is an annual event held at the Brewhouse Yard museum, near Nottingham Castle.

A lovely accessible 'vintage' event, perfect for those just getting into the vintage style scene, those keen longtime enthusiasts like myself or just general members of the public.

There was a general wartime feel with people dressed up in military clothing with old vehicles as well as dances and vintage items on sale.

Here are a few photos expertly taken by Amy McAskell
