World War Two Event and Vintage, Craft and Curio Fair – two day event this weekend!

Friend of the blog and top Pelsall bloke Chris Hill has asked me to point out a two day event this weekend that’s happening at the Staffordshire Regiment Museum, at the former Whittington Barracks, on the A51 between Lichfield and Whittington.

There will be a World War Two event running Saturday and Sunday (11 and 12th July 2015) from 11am until 6pm each day. As part of that there will also be a vintage, craft and curio fair run by Space Hopper Events, which looks like a real hoot.

The following article about the World War Two Event was posted by Lichfield Live:

History will come to life when the Staffordshire Regiment Museum’s popular World War Two weekend returns.

Re-enactors including the British Airborne, Dutch Resistance and British Military Police will be at the event on July 11 and 12.

A spokesperson for the museum said: “Last year’s weekend was hugely successful, so this year we are laying on even more to entertain the crowds.

“We’ll be welcoming Winston Churchill, Field Marshall Montgomery with his personal Adjutant, and visitors will need to watch out for the French Resistance who will be helping an RAF pilot to evade capture.”

There will also be military vehicles on show, a NAAFI cafe and a Black Market Bazaar.

The event starts each day at 11am and ends at 6pm. Entry is £6 for adults, £4 for children, senior citizens and concessions, while a family ticket for two adults and up to three children is £20.
