Established in 2005 the Northern World War II Association is an organisation that unites a variety of 1940’s living history & re-enactment groups.
Visitors can see replica and authentic weaponry, as well as costume and camps set up by the re-enactment group, as well as meet 'living characters' on the day.
Each group portrays a different aspect of the second world war and by linking these individual groups into a single association our aim is to try to give visitors a feel for what it was like to live through, one of the largest and bloodiest conflicts in human history.
Using authentic living history encampments displaying a mixture genuine and replica equipment, weapons, uniforms, and by incorporating firing displays and battle re-enactments the event 's aim is to try to inform, educate and help people understand the conflict from the viewpoint of a variety of allied and axis, military and civilian organisations.
