    1. Elsecar Heritage Centre @ Elsecar Heritage Centre
      12:00 am – 11:59 pm

      Elsecar Heritage Railway this is a One day event on Sunday 25th of May but
      as there are spaces for
      Camping and Caravans in first part of the Car Park reenactors can arrive
      from 10:00hrs on Saturday 24th May. There is a dance with pie and peas in
      Large Marquis behind station on Saturday evening tickets are £10.

      The Event opens at 10:00hrs Sunday 25th May 2014.
      For any members who have not been to Elsecar Heritage Centre before, the
      event is all hard standing so groups should keep this in mind when planning
      their Living History Displays. There’s room for vehicles so a L/H display
      centred around Jeep(s)/ Motorcycle and side-car etc. would be ideal.
      Displays can also be set up in the Marquis on Sunday and the Association is
      looking into the possibility of extra free-standing tents or some kind of
      frame we can throw canvas sheeting over.

      The preliminary format of the event is…

      The public will be stood on the train platform and the scenario’s will take
      place on the track area below after the train has left the station. Each
      NWW2A group attending can create their own mini scenario using
      allies/axis/smoke and small pyros etc.

      11am: Remembrance Service (TBC)
      1:30 Firing Display and Talk
      Station And Platform
      All day scenario based on the station platform and trains
      12 noon: Train leaves station

    1. Vetrans Day Preston City Centre @ Preston City Centre
      1:00 am – 11:00 pm

      A Brand New event to mark Veterans day in Preston City Centre. This Year it is a One Day Event on the Saturday with Northern World War Two providing the centre piece.The event organisers want living history, so field kit weapons etc, Vehicles  and a SMALL skirmish which will  be on a hard standing area so  this is something a little different to just the usual style of event.

       

      Some food and drink will be provided also free parking. The organisers are keen to have us there, they want NWW2A to take part in the lowering of the regimental standards and to meet the Veterans. The plan is that next year the event will be moved to to a new venue in a nearby park organisers  are hoping we will be able provide an event on the scale of Lytham next year.
