Customers will be able to walk up and down three aisles and browse shelves containing dozens of products from the era including Colman's mustard, Pears soap and Carnation evaporated milk, all in vintage packaging.

Well-loved products such as Treets, Marathon bars, Opal Fruits, Tunnocks' tea cakes and traditional cream soda are also available to buy in their old-style branding.

Even the check-out assistants will be dressed in vintage uniforms, with hair and make-up styled in the fashion of the era.

Around 140,000 people are expected to visit the event near Chichester in West Sussex, which ends on Sunday.

Andrew Higginson, chief executive of Tesco retailing services, said: "We have spent months planning the retro store, poring over old photographs and employee reports, to ensure we give customers a real authentic feel of shopping in the Sixties.

"Tesco has been a much-loved British institution since the 1920s and we're very proud to be associated with such a fantastic British racing event."
