Time

10.30am-5pm

Location

Wrest Park 

Suitable For

Everyone

Three people in military uniform riding white horses.

Take cover as this explosive action packed weekend propels you into wartime Britain. From the Tommy in the trenches of the First World War to the Trooper of the D-Day landings, prepare yourself as you’re drawn into the theatre of war from all quarters at Wrest Park.

Walk through the grounds of Wrest Park and be fully immersed as you navigate your way to the front line. Fall into step as we train budding troops, experience the life of the brave nurses and doctors patching up the soldiers in the hospital, and see the spectacle of the Prince Malik Lancers on horseback.

From the sadness and injury of the battlefield to the make-do-and-mend lifestyle of the homefront, we’ll tell the stories behind the battles that shaped the world as we know it.

Returning for 2017 - the huge arena finale!
