Wartime in the Cotswolds at GWSR

Saturday 27 - Sunday 28 April 2019

Come and visit 2018's nostalgic 1940s weekend at the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway. Transport yourself back to September 1940 and imagine you are waiting for a train at a small station on the Great Western Railway. Children are being evacuated to the coast, soldiers are going back to barracks, and aircrew are heading off to airfields in the South and West. "Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag, and smile, smile, smile."
Members of the public are encouraged to attend the weekend in British 1940's period dress, either military or civilian. German uniforms will NOT be allowed, especially Nazi and SS uniforms with any form of swastika or insignia. Firearms of any sort, replica or de-activated will NOT be allowed on site unless authorised in advance by the organisers.
Travel on a train between Cheltenham Race Course Station and Broadway on a beautiful heritage railway line, stopping to look at the exhibits and entertainment on offer at Gotherington, Winchcombe and Toddington stations.

Entry by ticket only.
