Wartime fun in Newbury


There will be a war time vibe around Newbury when the town hosts a 1940's weekend.


Organised by Newbury Bid, the event that will see Newbury's wartime history 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.

Fashion shows, a retro fair, vehicle displays, cooking demonstrations, historical talks and walks are also planned.

The new Greenham Common museum and cafe will be both opened for the very first time.

More information about the event on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 September can be found on the Newbury Bid website.
