Salute to the ’40s 2021

18 Sep 2021 - 19 Sep 2021

We'll meet again - 18 & 19 September 2021

** 2020 event postponed **

Whilst the world adjusts to living and working within the latest Covid-19 safety restrictions, Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust has needed to carefully review its operations, including future programming and events.

Salute to the ’40s is always a busy, vibrant event that brings people together from all over the country. At this time we feel that, within the current government guidelines, we would not be able to operate the event safely for our visitors, performers, traders and staff.

We have therefore taken the difficult decision to postpone Salute to the ’40s in 2020.

We'll meet again

Your must visit 1940s weekend

Get ready for a party to end all parties! By postponing the event for 2020, we can focus all our energy on making sure 2021 will be the best Salute to the ’40s – ever!

Start planning your vintage outfit and perfecting your victory rolls now. The wartime spirit is very much alive and we’ll meet again on 18 & 19 September 2021.
