The Newhaven Fort family days, held in conjunction with St Dunstan’s, will give families a chance to experience what life was like during WWI and WWII, through interactive and engaging tours, talks and craft workshops.
Learn about life on the Home Front and hear personal accounts from St Dunstan’s speakers as they reminisce about their wartime experiences. St Dunstan’s will also be hosting a special craft workshop where children can create clay and paper mache models of traditional wartime sweets and rations to take home. *
In addition there will be many drop-in activity sessions throughout the day. Visit the art workshops and create a traditional wartime toy or have a go at planning a family menu using your weekly rations.
Learn the art of crochet in our ‘crochet and chat’ workshops and visit the WWI and WWII object handling sessions where you will have the unique opportunity to learn about and handle historical artifacts.
Bugle call demonstrations and parade ground drills will also be taking place throughout the day and follow the special ‘Pathfinder Pudding’ quiz trail to discover what ingredients are used to create this wartime dish.
All activities are free and included in the cost of admission. Newhaven Fort is open from 10:30am – 6pm (last admission 5pm). For more information visit www.newhavenfort.org.uk
