1940s Living History August Bank Holiday Weekend
Sat Aug 24 - Sun Aug 25
Get involved! All visitors are encouraged to dress in period costume.
Several small groups of re-enactors including WW2 Days Gone By and Armed Forces Movement Control, will be on site over the bank holiday weekend. The groups will be portraying both military and civilians, helping to enhance the 1940s theme and allowing visitors to get up close to uniforms, clothing and kit of the period.
The day will be packed with demonstrations and renowned 1940s entertainers Paul Harper and Don Gentile will be performing throughout the day.
All visitors to the museum are invited to join in with the fun and get dressed up in either civilian or military period clothing. All weapons (including but not limited to deactivated rifles, blank firing weapons, knives, bayonets) are NOT permitted on site. Costume must be respectful and SS/Gestapo uniform (or similar) is strictly prohibited.
