Enjoy great days out and exciting events this May bank holiday and throughout half term. Witness medieval combat as knights clash at our tournaments, or step back in time to the 1940s as WWII weekend comes to Dover Castle.


WWII Weekend, 27-29 May, Dover Castle

Soak up the atmosphere in the military encampments and get up close to a full size replica Spitfire at our biggest event of the year. Meet the Land Girls, visit the 1940s beauty parlour for a victory roll hairdo, then revive that wartime spirit with a lovely brew from the original NAAFI wagon. It's a day to remember for all ages.
