There will also be live entertainment throughout the day, along with a Winston Churchill look-a-like, vintage makeovers, period games and war-time crafts.


The event has been organised by Carnegie House in partnership with Bridgend Town Council and CF31 Bid.


Along with Wartime Bridgend, the town centre will also host its regular monthly street market on Saturday, as well as an indoor craft market.
