This family day out is the ultimate celebration of those who have died for their country in the great wars of World War One and World War Two. Set just southwest of Leeds – the Yorkshire Wartime Experience provides an interactive and immersive experience for children and adults to learn about past wars.
The North of England’s largest WWI & WWII Military Vehicle & Living History event has over 500 military vehicles and over 50 battle re-enactments, which aim to celebrate, commemorate and educate people about the past wars.
Taking place this weekend, from the 12th – 14th August, on 30 acres of land in Hunsworth near Bradford, the Yorkshire Wartime Experience provides an immersive and exciting for people to begin to understand what it was like to live through the wars and conflicts of the 20th Century.
The use of battle re-enactments, which are choreographed with meticulous details, allows visitors to get a feel for what battle was like back in the day. You can also walk amongst the “British Tommies along ‘beaches of Normandy’ – it’s an exciting experience and the perfect family day out.
They teach about the Women’s Land Army, which was a British civilian organisation created in 1917 during World War I so women could work in agriculture. It was revived from the disbanded World War One organisation in 1939 so that it could again organise women to replace workers called up to the military.
The weekend promises more recent conflict information as well as daily vehicle parades of the largest and rarest military vehicles. They will be on display for you to get some nice snaps with also. Tickets are just £15 for adults, £8 for kids with WWII veterans and kids under three get in free.
