Memories of the 1940s

1940s Re-enactors

Step back to 1940s Britain on the Homefront, with live entertainment from the 1940s and a range of nostalgic events.

There will be a children’s boot camp / drill for those brave enough to face Sergeant Major Marmite!  Our ‘Winston Churchill’ will make rallying speeches at Town End and walk about meeting visitors.

Re enactors will be mingling and there will be group displays on Woodland Walk.
