Living History Weekend at Eden Camp
Become a part of the camaraderie of life on the Home Front and Front Line and experience the sights and sounds of wartime Britain as Living History and Re-enactor volunteers take you back in time to show what life was like living in the 1940’s.
Learn all about the history of the era from uniforms, military equipment, memorabilia, and vehicles to fashion, rationing and how civilians and troops alike let their hair down. On the day there will be talks, demonstrations, live music from the era and military displays.
The new play area will be open for the children to let off some steam and Winstan’s Bunker Cafe will be serving delicious refreshments throughout the day. All visitors to the museum are invited to join in with the fun and are encouraged to get dressed up in either civilian or military period clothing. Costumes must be respectful and SS/Gestapo uniform (or similar) is strictly prohibited.
Please note that the museum will be open as normal on these days. Events are attended voluntarily and as such they may be affected by influences such as adverse weather conditions.
