Wartime in the Cotswolds

Step back in time at the Wartime in the Cotswolds weekend

Join us 27 – 28  April 2019 for a nostalgic town centre experience – 1940s’ style.

The bunting will be up, the ‘40s music playing as local people get into the wartime spirit as part of this amazing experience – now an annual event.

The Wartime in the Cotswolds weekend is run by Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway, who encourage visitors to get in the spirit and don period dress, British or US military or civilian. (Please note: German, Nazi or SS uniforms, or displays of swastikas or insignia are NOT permitted on the GWSR sites at Toddington, Broadway or Winchcombe.)

Take a steam train from Toddington to Winchcombe, Cheltenham and Broadway.  At designated times over the weekend King George and ‘Monty’ – Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery – will give rousing wartime speeches, accompanied by military jeeps, motorbikes, military staff and supporters.

Look at the exhibits and entertainment on offer at Gotherington, Winchcombe and Toddington stations.

If you weren’t around to experience the ‘40s and the wartime spirit – don’t miss this magnificent step back in time.
