Displays and Events

Each year our volunteers take some of our displays to other venues and events. They do a fantastic job of promoting our work at the Battery.  They give out details and the history of the Battery site and World War 2 in general. We also visit schools and other groups and events, please contact us if you would like us to visit you.

 

 

But it's not all work...

Our volunteers do manage to enjoy themselves... such as taking part in our local Carnival (and winning prizes), visiting other shows and events, visiting museums, meals and drinks... There is an active social side to being a volunteer at the Battery... 

Open Days

During the year, along with our normal opening hours, the Battery hosts open days at the site.  These include our annual two day show, V.E Day, D Day, and October half term.  Take a look at our events page to see our calendar of open days this year and when our next event is.

Open days are usually on a Sunday and we are open from 11am to  4pm.  All of the site is open during open days, there are tours of the grounds, living history displays, weapons talk with blank firing, visiting groups and sometimes military vehicles in attendance.

Tea and coffee (served in China cups of course) plus homemade cakes are also to be had...

Visiting groups are always welcome, please contact us if you would like to attend our next open day...
