THE Whitby Gazette has once more teamed up with Croft Circuit, this time to give away THREE pairs of tickets to one of its biggest events of the year – the Croft Nostalgia weekend of 4/5 August.

Croft Nostalgia is an all singing, all-dancing Forties-Seventies lifestyle festival with the public invited to dress in period style to add to the event’s enchanting yesteryear atmosphere.

On the track is a packed programme of races for iconic GT, single-seater, saloon and sportscars as a truly golden era of motor sport is recreated by the famed Historic Sports Car Club.

Off the track the retro theme continues apace with vast displays of classic and vintage cars, bikes, buses and other vehicles plus a collection of WWII military machinery including tanks, jeeps and personnel carriers.

In the skies, air displays from an evocative RAF Spitfire, Sixties Jet Provost and Thirties Hawker/Isaacs Fury stunt bi-plane are already confirmed.

There’s also music (including a George Formby act), fashion and food and plenty more sights, smells and sounds from a bygone era to enjoy.

It all adds up to a weekend that three or more generations of family can enjoy together, with grandma and grandad able to show their grandkids just what life was once like.

Tickets are priced just £10 Saturday and £12 Sunday for adults when booked in advance at or by calling 01325 721815.

Admission for accompanied children aged 15 and under is FREE all weekend.

* See Whitby Gazette next Friday (27 July) to see how to win one of three pairs of tickets to the Croft Nostalgia weekend.
