16 Jul Woodhall Spa 1940’s Festival
Wolseley Owners Club members attended the Woodhall Spa 1940’s weekend Festival on 15th and 16th July in Lincolnshire. An estimated 45,000 visitors flocked to the Festival, making this the biggest and best event in its six year history.
Feedback given to its volunteer committee and to the festival’s Facebook site, show the event was a massive success due to the range of entertainment, re-enactments, vehicles, competitions and the “electric atmosphere”.
Highlights included flypasts by the BBMF on both days, crowned by a Sunday afternoon appearance by the Lancaster Bomber “Thumper”, based at nearby RAF Coningsby, a skirmish re-enactment in the grounds of the Petwood Hotel and regular sightings of a Winston Churchill impersonator who posed for photos with visitors!
Two film crews attended the festival – one filming for ‘Britain’s Best Village’ for Channel 4 and the other for ‘World War II Treasure Hunters’ for the History Channel, presented by Madness singer Suggs who happily met visitors on The Broadway on Saturday.
Member Pip Bellsham at the Festival took some superb pictures, which can be found on her Facebook page here
