Village at War

Sunday 26 and Bank Holiday Monday 27 August 10am - 5pm

Step back to the 1940s home front and discover how Norfolk helped feed the country during the Second World War.

The annual Village at War event once again promises to deliver an impressive display of home front history.  Stroll around military and civilian vehicles and meet costumed characters from both the British and American forces, enjoy toe tapping 1940s music and live radio shows from the talented ‘Timescape’, and see just how far the rations can be stretched with cooking in the farmhouse kitchen.
