11th-13th October 2019

We’ve had a more successful Wartime Weekend than last year.  We were joined this time by the Milites Hallamshire Battalion group, who set up their camp on the very wet land next to the level crossing.  They gave gun and hand grenade demonstrations for our visitors, as well as tours of their accommodations.

The British Restaurant was again in operation in the Yard, whilst the British Restaurant Cash and Carry outlets (Weighbridge Teas and the Tea Hut) provided the take away service. 

The paddock hosted the Dance Hall; with performances from The Knightingales and a pop-up theatre performance about an evacuee from Hull.

The preserves stall, selling home made jams and chutneys made with produce from the Station gardens, was quite successful on Saturday. We didn’t set up the stall on Sunday due to a lack of undercover space!

Although Saturday was good weather wise, both Friday morning and Sunday were disappointing.  This no doubt had an effect on the number of visitors who joined us on Sunday.

All we have to do now is get it all dismantled and put away on Monday so the hired in marquees can be taken down in Tuesday.
