1940s Re-Enactment Weekend

Sat 12th & Sun 13th Aug
10-4pm

Embark on time-travel back to the 1940s and see a WWII Re-enactment.

Northern World War Two Association are delighted to be asked to provide a re-enactment of «Living History» camps in association with the National Coal Mining Museum.
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.

Event Lasts from 10-4pm and is FREE to attend
