Bank holiday weekend 30th & 31st May – two days of living history – how it was in the 1940s.

Middy in the War Years, one of the MSLR’s most popular and ambitious events, is confirmed as the first event of the 2021 programme following easing of Covid restrictions. The weekend will celebrate the Middy’s part in WW2 with a wide range of re-enactors including, perhaps, a famous face or two, displays of memorabilia and a long list of military and vintage vehicles. And for the first time, a re-enactment group of German Mountain Troops. Plus, of course,  steam train rides in genuine Victorian 4-wheel coaches.

With the number of confirmed contributors and participants, Middy in the War Years brings history alive and makes a great day out for families and enthusiasts alike.

Times, prices and ticketing arrangements will be on the Middy website from Wednesday afternoon 12th May. Pre-booking only.
