Pssssst... want some news?

We're delighted to confirm that the Woodhall Spa 1940s Festival will return in 2017!

We'll be building on the success of this year's weekend, which attracted an amazing 40,000 visitors, and making further improvements to parking, shuttle buses and we will also introduce some more new features. Keep your eyes peeled for details on our plans as we get everything in place in 2017.

Book the date in your diary now - 15 and 16 July. If you're planning to come from afar and stay for the weekend, best book your room, camping spot or caravan now.

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.
