First World War Living History Day
Join us as we welcome the 10th Essex Regiment Living History group to Abbeyfields as they set up their authentic WWI camp for the day. Discover how life was for the British Tommy on the Flanders battlefields and learn all about the ‘newly formed’ Royal Flying Corps.
The star of the day will be the life size replica Nieuport 12 two-seater bi-plane and its crew.
