WOODHALL SPA 40s WEEKEND - July 7-8
Woodhall Spa 1940s Festival & Thorpe Camp 1940s Weekend.
The second weekend in July 2018 saw the very best of our region, as two highly successful events that celebrate Lincolnshire’s unique role in World War II will take place in partnership with record breaking weather for the shole weekend.
Woodhall Spa 1940s Festival and Thorpe Camp 1940s Weekend was - for one year only – took place on the same weekend, 7-8 July 2018. The “Blitz spirit” partnership forged between the two volunteer committees meant huge opportunity for visitors to attend two of Lincolnshire’s best summer events in one fantastic weekend.
With excellent parking in four car parks, park and ride at a cost of £5 per car, and free transport between Woodhall Spa and Thorpe Camp – a journey of less than 10 minutes – every visitor had the chance to learn about the social and military history of the region, see exciting re-enactments, sing and dance along with the very best 1940s entertainers, feel the thrill of seeing the majestic BBMF soar overhead (and much, much more) across two very different locations.
The Woodhall Spa 40's Festival consists of a wide variety of 40's 'Home Front' themed events which take place at numerous venues across the village throughout the weekend. We charge £5 for Park & Ride and one or two concerts are ticket only, but other than that all the entertainment throughout the village is free! Do come along and enjoy next year to the unique atmosphere of Woodhall Spa as we turn back time!
The Woodhall Spa 40's Festival is free to all and enjoyed by thousands. The only way that the committe can do this is through the generous funding of our allies. We like to tell you who they are and at one and the same time convey our thanks for their support. Please visit the 'Allies' page and look out for the "Proud Supporter" window stickers. These businesses have supported the Festival so please support them when it comes to teas, coffees, drinks, food, books and so much more!
Both events help put the region on the tourist map; Woodhall Spa’s Festival now attracts in excess of 40,000 visitors per year and Thorpe Camp’s event helps support the future of the museum as a must-visit attraction for years to come, and we can’t wait to welcome you to both sites.
