The event would feature live music and dancing, around 30 vintage vehicles, an outdoor cinema, street food, vintage shopping and more.

A spokesman for the weekend organisers, Apollo Events, released a social media post on Sunday morning to announce the cancellation.

The statement read: "We are devastated to announce this year's Hingham 1940's Weekend 2024 is cancelled due to poor ground conditions.

"The recent and persistent wet weather has significantly impacted the field conditions and has resulted in several crucial areas being completely un-useable.

"The field will not be safe to host the weekend's activities and has left us no choice but to cancel the event."

The company confirmed that all tickets, which cost £15 for adults, will be refunded within a week.

They added: "We have to hold everyone's safety at the forefront of planning".
