Would you like a little bit of news?

At long last, we're very happy to let you know that our Festival will return in 2018, on the weekend of 7th-8th July. We can't wait to see you then!

You may notice that the 2018 date is a week earlier than our traditional weekend. This is because we have to work around several other large events taking place in the village in July, all of which would impact on the scale of our event or affect the kind of features and entertainment you should expect from us if we stuck to the middle weekend of July. This hasn't been a fast or easy decision to reach - one full of complexities - hence the time delay in announcing the date, but this weekend is the best possible option for 2018. We're looking forward to cracking on with the plans for next year.

If you need to book accommodation, act fast while this news is fresh!

While we're letting you know the date for next year, we hope it's helpful to confirm the dates for the following three years to help you secure holiday and accommodation as far in advance as possible:

2019 - 20th-21st July
2020 - 18th-19th July
2021 - 17th-18th July

These dates are subject to annual confirmation that the festival will take place.

We hope this is welcome news! Please do share this post to let all your friends and family know when we'll be back next year!

The Woodhall Spa 40's Festival consists of a wide variety of 40's 'Home Front' themed events which take place at numerous venues across the village throughout the weekend. We charge £5 for Park & Ride 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 Spa as we turn back time!

Announcing Our 2017 Allies

The Woodhall Spa 40's Festival is free to all and enjoyed by thousands. The only way we can do this is through the generous funding of our allies. We like to tell you who they are and at one and the same time convey our thanks for their support. Please visit the 'Allies' page and look out for the "Proud Supporter" window stickers. These businesses have supported the Festival so please support them when it comes to teas, coffees, drinks, food, books and so much more!

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.
