I like to look up 1940's events here at Friends of the 40s as they have a really great calendar of listings.
Rockabilly gigs are easy to search here at The Complete Rock N Roll UK Gig Guide.
I also regularly check out "East Midlands Vintage World" on facebook to find out about events and what's happening.
But anyway, on with the show!

6th, 7th & 8th July 2012 - Americana Event, Newark. I've seen this advertised a lot now and looks like a really great event celebrating everything 50's, 60's and American. Also the Hicksville Bombers, a great local Rockabilly band, will be playing at the show.
