W E L C O M E to this site which is dedicated to all the people who contributed towards
making the sixties around Warrington something special with their music and other
If (like me) you are into 1940s-50s music, (let’s face it, it’s where our kind of
music was born), there will be plenty of jiving etc at the Heywood 1940’s Bash this
weekend 28th & 29th June and on Sunday 29th Lymm Village is having an Historic Transport
Festival. Both events will have the kind of vintage vehicles we used to trundle around
in to get to gigs, invariably ending up at the Hoagie Wagon at the end of the night.
Plus in September (13th & 14th) Burtonwood Heritage Centre will be holding their
annual bash. Hands up all those who have ‘gigged’ at the base during 50’s onwards.
Burtonwood Air Base was the fulcrum that made Warrington one of the richest towns
(musically) in the sixties.
I hope you enjoy my little tribute to the largest Air base in Europe in its prime.
