Woodhall Spa 1940s Festival and Thorpe Camp 1940s Weekend

The second weekend in July 2018 will see the very best of our region, as two highly successful events that celebrate Lincolnshire’s unique role in World War II will take place in partnership.

Woodhall Spa 1940s Festival and Thorpe Camp 1940s Weekend will – for one year only – take place on the same weekend, 7-8 July 2018. The “Blitz spirit” partnership forged between the two volunteer committees means huge opportunity for visitors to attend two of Lincolnshire’s best summer events in one fantastic weekend.

With excellent parking and free transport between Woodhall Spa and Thorpe Camp – a journey of less than 10 minutes – every visitor will have the chance to learn about the social and military history of the region, see exciting re-enactments, sing and dance along with the very best 1940s entertainers, feel the thrill of seeing the majestic BBMF soar overhead (and much, much more) across two very different locations.

Both events help put the region on the tourist map; Woodhall Spa’s Festival now attracts in excess of 40,000 visitors per year and Thorpe Camp’s event helps support the future of the museum as a must-visit attraction for years to come, and we can’t wait to welcome you to both sites.

We’ll be able to tell you much more about the partnership over the coming months, but for now make sure 7-8 July is booked in your diary, as you won’t want to miss this.

Woodhall Spa 1940’s Festival 2018

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 – 13th-14th 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!
