Woodhall Spa 40s Festival 2023

8th July - 9th July 2023
Please note: This event has now taken place. We have published a gallery showing Strictly GI's impression at this event: View event gallery.

After attending in a smaller capacity previous years and being impressed with the overall quality of the event and the number of crowds that the event attracts, Strictly GI approached the organisers and requested space to pull off one of our largest displays in the group's history. Stuart and team were very obliging, and have kindly agreed to allow us to use a large portion of Jubilee Park for our tented hospital display.

Our display will focus on the 128th Evacuation Hospital during the unit's time in Normandy, 1944. The 128th was the first Evacuation Hospital to land in Normandy, disembarking at 1530 hours, at Utah Beach on 10 June 1944. To learn more about the history of this incredible unit, please see the Unit History published on the WW2 US Medical Research Centre.

The impression will feature, amongst smaller details, an Operating Room, Ward, X-Ray facility and mobile Dental Clinic, all equipped with original items and vehicles. 

Public attendance details can be found on the official event website, and we encourage all members of the public to pre-book parking if you're planning to attend! The event encompasses the whole village, and there's fun for all of the family.
