You commented on the 2016 Festival response to a few words from ur District Councillor.

It was our second time at Woodhall and found it to be even better than last year. Well done to the organisers, the retailers and the residents. Dates for next year are already in the diary!
Thanks for a great weekend.


Our second year as visitors but are planning to take part next year with our old Land Rover if you will have us?


We have no idea of how much voluntary time and stress you all willingly put yourselves under. I thank you for every second. And my 87 year old dad thought he had time travelled back to his youth and was the most animated and excited I have seen him for years. Thank you. Thank you. To everyone who gave a minute of their time to make it happen.


Many thanks to the organisers of the Woodhall Spa 1940's Weekend it was absolutely brilliant!


Excellent decision to close off Broadway well done to everyone involved. Looking forward to next year.


Have attended the past four years, the event grows year on year and the park and ride was a success. Give yourselves a pat on the back Woodhall.


My party had the most amazing weekend and we can see the tremendous effort and hard work that goes in to this event. We want to say a huge thank you to the organisers for an excellent event and to the residents of Woodhall for making us welcome. If this event doesn't take place next year, It will be a travesty !! I'd be happy to buy tickets for the event, as I'm sure others would if it guaranteed the event were to continue.


My families first visit to this amazing event as we just moved up from west Sussex. Got to say that we loved the day, the entertainment, the village and the locals. Thank you all for making us so welcome and having this wonderful event. We have the dates in our calendar for next year and I can't wait!


I came for the first time with my daughters. We had the most wonderful time and it is so evident how much hard work goes into this event. Well done and hope you enjoy a well earned rest.


 It was my first time and I absolutely loved it. Will definitely be back next year. Well done to every one for all you efforts.


 I would like to thank the organisers of this week-end my congratulations a wonderful week-end enjoyed every moment of it the icing on the cake was the Lancaster flying above I think you should be really proud of yourselves for giving us all such a lovely experience a big THANK YOU

The Woodhall Spa 40's Festival consists of a wide variety of events which take place at numerous venues across the village throughout the weekend.

We charge £5 for Park, Ride & Read and one or two concerts are ticket only, but other than that all the entertainment throughout the village is free!

Do come along and enjoy the unique atmosphere of Woodhall as we turn back time!


Don't just spectate - Participate!

Forget the t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops on the Festival weekend; you will stand out like a sore thumb. A few pounds spent in a charity shop or on Ebay and you will be amazed at how easy it is to achieve the 1940's look!

No need to dress up as RAF or Army officers; simple civilian attire will do absolutely fine.


Why you should use the Park & Ride system

(rather than abandoning vehicles around the village).

* First and foremost - everyone's safety
* Clear and unrestricted routes through the village for emergency vehicles
* Continued support for the Festival from the residents of the village
* Aesthetics - the opportunity to turn back the clock 70 years in the village centre.
