A Flavour of the Forties

09 July - 13 July 2018

Our costumed characters are preparing to go 'Back to the Forties' ahead of our 1940s Weekend, see the preparations as they blast tape windows, dig out the ration books and set up the Anderson shelters. 

  • Hear about rationing and the recipes used to make food last longer, pick up some recipe cards to take home.
  • See traditional crafts.
  • Make do and mend – learn about the importance of sewing and knitting in a time when clothes were rationed.
  • Find out about the impact on transport, such as petrol shortages and blackout lights.
  • Meet our scrap metal team with their horses.
  • Sing along with George Formby tribute by Joe Thomas on Wed 11, Thu 12 & Fri 13 between 11.30am - 2.30pm

Don’t forget that all full priced day tickets are valid for an UnChained Annual Pass, giving you 12 months’ unlimited daytime visits for free!
