The WW2 Day allows us to look at the lives of children during the 1940s utilising our collection of 1940s artefacts, costumes and our authentic Anderson Shelter.
The day’s activities include:
Visiting the 1940s Sitting Room
Craft making activity
A visit to the Anderson Shelter
Looking at rationing and evacuee life
A short black out and air raid experience
These days can either be self led or led by a member of the Weston Park team.
Self led visits – £4.00 per child
Led visit by a member of the Weston Park team – £7.50 per child
The small print: We only take one school per day and as a charity it is important for us to cover our costs. As such we require a minimum of 25 children or £187.50 (including VAT) per day – whichever is the greater. Visits cater for a maximum of 60 children – we qualify 35 or less children as one group. These days are available from September to May. The days commences from 10.00 a.m. until 2.30 p.m. Indoor area with tables and chairs is available throughout the day for the school’s use to leave coats and bags and as a luncheon area.
Note: During September-October and April-May we are able to offer access to our Woodland Adventure Playground
