A lovely addition which fits in so well with the wartime setting. The Drill Hall will be one of the areas used for entertainment where DJ Woody from Woodys War Department will be overseeing music throughout the weekend. Demonstrations will be given on war time cooking by Family at War and period hairdressing by the ladies from Hairaid Shelter who will also be organising a fashion show depicting clothes and trends of the 1940s. There will be numerous musical performances both days to suit everyone. The parade ground will be the setting for the bands appearing during the event. The canteen (NAAFI) will be open for spam sandwiches, bread pudding and anything else not on ration, with the 1940s garden being central to the Home Front displays.
In the adjacent 20 acre grass field we will again have the Big Top Circus tent just one of the available venues. All musical entertainment will be compared by DJ Major Swing aka Tim Handley. Musical interludes will take place here too between dance demonstrations and exhibitions given by the Cambs Beds and Lindy Experience (CABLE). This year our entertainment team consists of Adam Hoffman, Ian “Rosie” Rose, Paul Casper “aka George Formby” and joining us for the first time The Polkadot Dolls. Children are catered for too by Captain Silly Billy who will make sure that there will be lots of fun and laughter whenever he is performing. Spend your old pennies in the Vintage Penny Arcade. An arena will be situated in the events field where displays will take place throughout the weekend. A cavalcade of vintage vehicles will parade around the ring allowing visitors a closer glimpse of wonderful machines.
Each day between 2.00 pm and 2.30 pm there will be a battle re-enactment at the rear of the event field complete with firepower and visual effects.
Take time and meander between the trade stands and stalls selling their wares including vintage clothing, military and home front memorabilia and collectors’ items. You will also find the catering and licensed bar facilities here along with the funfair and displays of post 1940s classic vehicles.
