1940s Experience News

Thankyou to everybody that came to our September Open Day and congratulations to our two raffle winners. This month we were raffling off two baskets of fruit and two homemade cakes.

As an update, we now have a confirmed date for December. Our remaining Open Days for this year are:
~ Sunday 26th October
~ Sunday 30th November
~ Sunday 7th December

On the Open Days in November and December we will be holding our 1940s Christmas House. We will have our decorations up and we may be doing other Christmas related events on those days. On our November Open Day, we will be holding a drop-in 1940s Christmas decoration making session in the village schoolroom. Keep checking our next events page for any further updates of Christmas related events.

We also have a date confirmed for The Forties Family Experience Weekend IX! Our popular whole weekend event will be taking place on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th April 2015. No further events have been confirmed yet but keep checking our next events page for any updates. If you've not been to one of our big Forties Family Experience Weekends before, you can see a selection of photographs from our two most recent shows by visiting our 1940s Events Gallery.

Until next time.
