Whitby War Weekend

Whitby War Weekend

Go back through the ages to experience the sights and sounds from 5th century BC through to WW2, featuring re-enactments portraying the clashing swords of the Vikings and the musket shots and bugles of the American Civil War amongst others. Learn about the profound impacts on both European and World history through a whole host of scenarios covering some of the most significant periods of combat.

Visit specialist and general trade stands, see firing displays, sword fighting, have a go at axe throwing and/or archery and experience the thrill of a ride in an armoured tank.

The event will also feature singers showcasing music throughout the ages (they will also be performing in the evenings for those staying onsite), various catering outlets to suit all the family and a licensed bar with stage for live performances. This truly is a festival of commemoration and an opportunity for the whole family to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of history.
