In this 100th anniversary year of Vimy Ridge, Arras and Passchendaele, we will be putting on another major immersive First World War experience. There will be a training camp at which ‘recruits’ will be shown and ask to take part in a number of drills similar to those practiced at camps near here in south-west Wiltshire.
We will also have a new trench experience, at which people can enter as a fly-on-the-wall spectator as our living historians enact scenarios from 1917. (To book, please see programme.)
Throughout the week will be a number of period vehicles on display and the chance to ride on a First World War horse-drawn ambulance.
Sword School will be returning (to book, please see programme), along with Have-a-Go-Archery, numerous stalls, and demonstrations – there will always be much to see and do. We can’t wait!
