World War II comes to Bridgend in June

By GEM Staff Reporter in Events

On Saturday, June 10 Bridgend will step back in time to World War Two.

The town centre will be transformed back to the 1940s with demonstrations, period games and activities that were commonplace during the war.

Many of the activities will be educational for people of all ages and activities will include toy soldier painting, 1940s cookery and poppy-making, as well as a 1940s’ dance.

Musical entertainment will take place throughout the day and a Winston Churchill sound- and look-alike will make an appearance around the town. Field Marshal Montgomery will also be on parade.

Other activities set to take place are a photographic exhibition by Bridgend & District Local History Society, a wartime display by Michael Ridley and a talk on Island Farm by Brett Exton.

This event will be a unique experience in historical terms for the Bridgend area and will be ’great fun for all the family’. It will be staged throughout Bridgend town centre from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, June 10.
