Easter Fun at Eden Camp

Saturday 30th March - Sunday 28th April 2019 Posted on 12th January 2017

Join us over the Easter holidays for the Eden Camp Wartime Easter Egg Hunt, traditional games, dressing up, living history and much more…

Wartime Easter Egg Hunt

Over the Easter holidays, we are holding our annual Easter Egg Hunt, but wartime rationing restrictions means that things could be a little different. Rest assured though, it will still be lots of fun!

Traditional Games

Our wartime games proved so popular last time out that they’re back! Visitors both young and old will be able to try their hand at a range of traditional games including skipping, marbles, skittles, hopscotch and quoits.

Dressing Up Box

Lots of fun military themed clothing to try on.

WW2 Living History Bank Holiday Weekend – Get Involved!

Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st April – Several small groups of re-enactors including WW2 Days Gone By and Armed Forces Movement Control, will be on site over the bank holiday weekend. The groups will be portraying both military and civilians, helping to enhance the 1940s theme and allowing visitors to get up close to uniforms, clothing and kit of the period.

Renown 1940s singer and entertainer, Paul Harper will be performing on Saturday 20th April.

Get involved! All visitors are encouraged to join in and come in period costume. More information here.

Escape Lines Memorial Society Reunion & Service

Saturday 27th April – The annual ELMS reunion event for the ‘helpers’, escapers and evaders who either organised, or used the escape lines of occupied Europe during World War II. More information here.

Free return within one calendar month

All this and over 30 huts of social and military history to explore, all set in the buildings and grounds of an original WW2 Prisoner of War Camp. Dog friendly. Winstan’s Bunker Cafe, gift shop and ample free parking. A great value day out for all the family.

The museum will be open as normal on these days. Traditional Games may be subject to weather conditions. We advise that you contact the museum nearer the time of any event to receive confirmation, admission prices and further details contact us.
