Durham nostalgia day returned to the centre of the city for 2019, and ExplorAR was there to capture it all on video.

With a variety of activities in Millennium Square and Durham Marketplace, Durham nostalgia day brought Second World War era historical items to the city centre to show the next generation.

There were restored old Second World War vehicles to explore lined up in front of the Durham Gala Theatre and a reenactment group with old military equipment, as well as music from Durham's Rock Choir, craft stalls, streetfood, insect workshops provide by Bugs N Stuff, and free face painting.

In Durham Marketplace was Beamish Museum's Heartbeat bus from the TV series, complete with Aidensfield as its destination on the front. Durham's Rock Choir performed a series of popular songs, and on the other side of the craft stalls was Second World War living history reenactors group Yesterday's Heroes.
