Over 100 pre-1950 vintage cars, vans, buses, lorries and motorbikes are now booked in for the Festival. Don’t miss the display on the Broadway and at the Golf Hotel. https://woodhall-spa-40s-festival.com/events-2/vintage-vehicles
The Bandstand in Jubilee Park will host a number of bands and singers of the weekend, ably supported by 1940’s UK Radio. For full details of the weekend’s program (so far) go to our website at: https://woodhall-spa-40s-festival.com/events-2/events
One of the very best things about our Festival is how many people make a huge effort to get involved. With so many people dressing up in their forties finest, and all the shops decorating their windows with a WWII theme you could easily feel like you are in 1946. We want to reward that effort, so take a look at how you could take home a prize. Good luck!

Jubilee Park is a major venue, hosting trade and charity stands, bands, singers, military vehicles and Living History Group displays. Don’t forget that the outdoor heated swimming pool is open throughout the weekend and it would be nice to see some 1940’s costumes!
Same time and same place on Saturday and Sunday
New for this year. A range of Living History Group displays in the grounds of the Golf Hotel. Full details of groups displaying here will appear on the website in the next week or two.
Exhibition about the role Woodhall Spa played in the battle for Arnhem. An action in WW2 immortalised in the film ‘A Bridge Too Far’. Based here, in Woodhall, was the Airlanding Brigade which fought at Arnhem. This Brigade went into battle using gliders landing close to the Dutch town. The Brigade was based in hutted camps just to the east of Woodhall with the headquarters of the units that comprised the force utilising hotels and large houses within Woodhall itself. The exhibition tells the story of the units and men of this Brigade and their time here in Woodhall.
