A great weekend out for all the family

The entire Lincolnshire village comes alive with 1940s nostalgia, style and "home front" themed activities for two days each July. Immerse yourself in the unique atmosphere as community volunteers turn back time to life on the home front. 

The festival events include the much anticipated Battle of Britain Memorial Flight flypast, concerts and dances and dance classes for you to learn the lindy hop too, vintage vehicle displays, reenactments in the woods by Living History Groups, the festival market at Jubilee Park, plus every business in Woodhall Spa joining in with special entertainment, menus, and shows for the occasion. 

Acts and entertainment throughout the weekend is in abundance too! Over 30 performers are ready to take you to a time before, including the likes of Brandyn Shaw, Jayne Darling, The Ragtime Rewind Band, Miss Sarah Jane, The Battlepipes, Jeep Johnson, Kyle Evans, Cleopatra Ridgeway, Lancashire Belle, Johnny Victory, and so so many more!

Don't forget to dress up for the occasion and join the friendly competitions throughout the weekend.
