1940s Weekend at Tutbury Castle

Recognising the 75th Anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Arnhem

Sunday 26th and Monday 27th May 2019

11am – 5pm (Last admission at 4pm)

This promises to be a fantastic day filled with nostalgia – hundreds of re-enactors dressed in 1940’s uniforms and civilian dress. British, American, German and Russian soldiers will create displays, show armaments and stage battle re-enactments.

Military vehicles will bring the war times to life and fantastic 1940’s music will keep your feet tapping throughout the day and the home fires burning. Living history groups will demonstrate how life was during the war years. Stallholders will be selling civilian and military memorabilia.

A great day out for all the family!

  • 1940s Wartime and Homefront camps
