Join us on 27 and 28 November to discover how Christmas was celebrated during the Second World War!
Immerse yourself in the festivities and get a vintage makeover, watch live demonstrations or browse our market for festive handicrafts & last minute treats.
Meet reenactors and learn about the role of animals and discover how ordinary people helped the war effort on the Home Front. You could even learn to Lindy Hop with the Maidstone Lindyhoppers! We’ll also be joined by the Brompton & Invicta Military Wives Choir as they sing traditional carols.
No visit is complete without a trip to see Sapper Santa’s Grotto & Workshop, where little ones can write letters, receive a special gift and create their own Christmas treasures!
