Visitors can celebrate the 'Best of British' and life in the 1940s with re-enactors demonstrating what life was like in wartime Britain; a 1940s farmyard with animals, vintage shopping stalls, make do and mend workshops, frugal cooking demonstrations, over 200 original restored wartime vehicles including the iconic Sherman Tank, arena events and a memorable fly-past by a Spitfire and Hurricane.
