Get ready to Jive like it's 1945! Our 1940s weekend takes place between Saturday 8th - Sunday 9th September starting at 10:30am. In collaboration with Home Front Histories we're taking Newbury back in time!
September is the month during which the areas wartime history is delivered through a series of fascinating presentations which include a one act play based on the story of the Home Guard and a lunchtime recital based on the famous home front concerts given by British pianist Dame Myra Hess.
However, the link between the town of Newbury and the airfield at Greenham Common is being rekindled in effect when the airfield control tower opens to the public and war walks of the site. Visitors to the town during the event will be able to travel to Greenham on a period bus which will operate a regular service between the Corn Exchange and the control tower car park.
