The RAF Harrowbeer 1940s Weekend is a free event for all to attend. It is held on ‘common land’ on Dartmoor which means even if we could, we are not able to charge for parking or entrance. Believe it or not, the event costs around £4,000 to put on and we rely entirely on sponsorship and donations from visitors to meet these costs. You can help by making a donation to our funds now, using one of the ways listed below. Any amount can be donated, small or large, so please donate now! As a guide, similar 1940s events where an admission charge is made, the cost is anywhere between £5 – £10 per person.
New this year is our 1940s Dance (with pasty supper) on Saturday 25th March from 7.30pm. This is our major fund-raiser for this year so please support us. Full details elsewhere on this website. When purchasing tickets, please put your surname as the reference and don’t forget to email email@example.com with ticket numbers required and your pasty choice(s), (meat or veg).

We would like to thank all the businesses that support our event with sponsorship as it helps to pay for all the necessary attractions etc that are needed to put on the 1940s Weekend.
Become a sponsor for the event.
We are now looking for Business sponsors for our 2023 event. In return for a generous donation, we will put a link to your company website on our sponsorship and event pages on this website, allow you to bring a stand or display to the event, and/or provide us with a banner or similar that we can place at a suitable position around the event site. Because our event is completely free for the public to attend, we can’t accurately count our visitor numbers but we estimate that we get around 1,000 visitors on site at any one time. Many arrive and then leave, but come back later having told friends and family!
