1940s event

Hever’s Home Front: 26 – 27 June

Step back in time to wartime Britain at Hever’s Home Front at this 1940s event.

Experience the sights and smells of the time with authentic cooking along with displays of US military vehicles. Browse stalls selling vintage wares and refreshments.

Step into the shoes of those during the time by dressing up in period costume. Finish off your outfit with a trip to a 1940s hair salon.

Meet Winston Churchill and enjoy displays of Home Guard drills and period model boats on the Moat, or have a selfie with a life-size model Spitfire.
