Wartime Christmas - Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 December.

Turn the clock back 80 years and step into a fabulous forties festive wonderland! Join a whole host of costumed characters, living history interpreters and even Father Christmas for a truly traditional Christmas event.


Our characterful Victorian police, fire and ambulance station will be filled with things to do, see and hear, from sensational vintage sounds to the smell of mulled wine. Join us to experience a truly immersive wartime Christmas.

Experience a wartime Christmas like no other. Enjoy live music and explore a series of interactive living history displays, from life on the line to the home front. Live actors and realistic scenes make for a truly interactive experience as you tour a part of the battlefront, talk to the troops, handle the equipment and take home a piece of history.
