Wartime Christmas

Christmas Event


Our ever-popular Wartime Christmas is back!

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 the the sensational vintage sounds of the Lah Di Dahs, Miss Marina Mae and Mr Johnny Victory to the smell of mulled wine. Join us to experience a truly immersive wartime Christmas.

Experience a wartime Christmas like no other. See our recreated 1940s dance hall 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. There’s even a traditional pub where you can pick up the perfect pint!

Once you're done exploring the immersive displays and meeting our costumed characters why not visit Santa? He's making time in his busy schedule to spend the weekend with us and if you're good you might even get a gift.
