The sounds and sights of the 1940s transformed a Leeds country house as it played host to a wartime weekend.

Visitors to Lotherton Hall enjoyed picnics, live music, re-enactors, dancing and craft activities, with the glorious weather the icing on the cake.

Coun Brian Selby, Leeds City Council’s lead member for museums and galleries, said: “Lotherton is the perfect place to bring together past and present, and I’m sure the entertainment and atmosphere combined to make this a memorable weekend for everyone who came along.”
