Let us transport you back in time with the sights, sounds and smells of the forties.

The museum will be brought to life by re-enactors who’ll recreate the every day spirit of the period.

Have your hair styled in a victory roll or pick up some forties fashions or accessories from Hepkat Kitten Vintage Hairstyling.

Dance to the songs performed by the Sparky and Sprite duet.

UKHomefront will be joined by a Bevin Boy, 1940s railway men, women in their pinnies and curlers having a ‘wash day’, the ladies of the Land Army and our brave home guard 'other ranks' on leave.
