The bit between Friday evening and Sunday evening!
I could write thousands of words but still be unable to convey how much we enjoyed ourselves

*

BBMF Spitfire
BBMF Spitfire

Looking into the tilted cockpit of a spitfire on fly past drinking a nice Tom Woods ๐Ÿป at the Petwood!

*

Does it count when I say all of it?

*

All of it.. We were lucky enough to be able to spend Friday to Monday in your beautiful village and enjoyed every moment of it . Cant wait until next year, we are hoping that our children will join in the fun

*

The atmosphere, the crowds, the flypast and the weather, the organisation.....fantastic...my first time here but will definitely not be my last

*

I loved the relaxed, friendly, family atmosphere. It was brilliant to see everyone's outfits. Those who were in 'civies' actually looked quite out of place! 

*

Meeting old school friend Stuart Holmes - lol. Apart from that just the whole atmosphere of the village, the participation of the shops, the ambience, everything. The re-enactments are really good, and the Hurricane/ Spitfire fly past was perfect.

*

We asked our grandson the same thing yesterday on our way home and said all of it and can I go as an army man next year lol. We had a great time mine was a photo of the grandchildren dressed as evacuees x

*

First time to the event so in awe of everything. The websites and photos do not show the true extent of the size of the event and how many people actually take part either as a volunteer or as a visitor. The fly over was fantastic on the Saturday as we were in the right place at the right time without knowing the itinerary ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘โœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿ›ฉ๐ŸŽ‰see you next year x

*

Really enjoyed it seeing all the classic cars and people dressed up, and the lovely atmosphere everyone enjoying themselves, perfect ,well done to all concerned see you next year x

*

Meeting a lovely couple who live in the village we shared their table on Saturday night at the inn and we hope to keep in touch plus the whole weekend fantastic

*

All of it! But especially seeing the Spitfire flying down the Broadway and my daughter winning the Best Dressed Lady on the Sunday

*

The whole thing was great! My kids loved it, especially them being allowed to sit on the Jeeps hold the weapons and gear ect, Cracking Day Out 

*

Pretty well all of it..I personally enjoyed the troops dug in in the woods- took loads of pics & enjoyed the banter with the guys. Low fly past was awesome too!

*

Putting this smile on my sons face. It was our first visit and we're already planning to return next year. What a fabulous event 

*

We loved it all ,but think the camp in the woods ,was especially good, lovely atmosphere as well ,x

*

Loved the fact that when asked if I could take their picture, everyone happily obliged!!!

*

Lola Lamour concert on Friday evening at the Golf Centre!

*

Too hard to single anything out. It was the whole experience.

*

Absoulety everything we loved the entire weekend can't wait for next year , please let it happen

*

Thumper back in the air on a glorious sunny day.

*

*

Everything - the lot!

*

Great weekend

*

My husband agreeing to us staying at my favourite hotel. The Petwood in October for their Fawlty Towers nite . That's a 200 mile journey for us . But on another note this is one of the best events on the 1940's circuit 

*

The fabulous welcome from everyone and their tolerance when being asked to pose for photographs. Thank you all.

*

I couldn't name just one! I loved the 'dig out in the woods' the man sewing on his buttons talking to his mates as if he were there. The forces band at jubilee park and having a cider on the hay bales, the amazing singer outside the bookstore, such a pity we only caught the last 30mins. The jeeps going up the street, the amazing cars, the re-enactments- the dressing up by many and the wonderful atmosphere. Sorry rather an essay but we loved it x

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.
