Wimpole at War - 1940s weekend

Enjoy at great weekend of 1940s entertainment and living history at Wimpole at War this September.

On Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September, see what life might have been like during this uncertain period, when war was raging across Europe and the rest of the world, with re-enactor displays and demonstrations throughout each day.
 
Both children and adults can join the Home Guard at their drill, see the workers on the Farm; meet the civil defence wardens and civilians that kept the home fires burning and watch out for the Spiv trying to sell blackmarket goods!  
 
Also ‘Winston Churchill’ and ‘General Montgomery’ will be checking out the troops who will then have a mock skirmish with German troops.
 
However, for those who might not be so into soldiers and guns, there’s more on the Home Front, with a 1940s fashion, plus  40s music in barn or browse the trade stalls with 40s 'stuff' to buy.  
 
To top it off, there will be fly past on both days by a Lancaster, Hurricane and a Spitfire kindly provided by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF).
