CANCELLED: 1940s Living History Weekend

In light of current government advice regarding Covid-19, we have taken the difficult decision not to open our site as planned on 1st April and our site will remain closed until such time as social distancing measures are restricted.

This means our 1940s event on 24/25 May will no longer go ahead.


Travel back in time to the 1940s at the Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey on Sunday 24th and Monday 25th May.

Living History re-enactment groups GI 41-45, The Dodwick Platoon of Local Defence Volunteers, and the Fen Tigers Home Front and Cambridgeshire Regiment, set up camp on site to recreate life in the Fens during World War Two.

Learn about the ways that local people would have grown their own food, repaired textiles and clothing… and even how they delivered babies during the War!

Children can have fun with craft activities and games in our Education Room and Stone Barn.

The Docky Box tea room will be open, serving lunches and traditional tea and cake.
