Step back in time

Have you ever wondered what it was like for your parents, grandparents or great grand-parents to make do and mend, dig for victory and pull together with genuine Dunkirk spirit during the heady and battle torn days of World War II?
soldier.32Step back in time to the 1940s at the Long Shop Museum in Leiston where they will be hosting a living history day on Saturday 30th April from 11am until 4pm. Join them at the Garrett & Sons works to see wartime re-enactors including Youth in Valour, and the Royal Norfolk Regiment Living History Group, with displays on life at home and abroad for men and women. Why not have a go on a milking training stand used by the Women’s Land Army! Plus, see wartime military and civilian vehicles, and hear about the work of the Eighth in the East project and nearby Parham Airfield.
Don’t miss Chocks Away For Dancing providing marvellous music and dance performances throughout the day, with a chance for visitors to join in, plus a performance from Tullulah Goodtimes with her unique voice and post-modern jukebox style.
As well as all that, why not hunt for a gem with vintage traders and stall holders. You never know what you might find! Wartime inspired refreshments and delicious homemade cakes will be available, plus the Duck & Pheasant Bar will be on site to quench your thirst.
Normal Admission. 1940s clothing encouraged! Please check the Museum website or phone the Museum (01728 832189) for updated details
