Dig for Victory returns from Thursday, 3rd to Sunday, 6th September.
Dig for Victory is the first event in our Great North Festival of Agriculture. The event is focused in and around our 1940s Farm and tells the story of life on the Home Front and the vital support role the British countryside played during the Second World War.
The 1940s Farm will be a hive of activity, with gardening and wartime recipes, Land Girls and lumberjills, “Make Do and Mend” and the Home Guard.
The month-long Festival of Agriculture celebrates the agricultural and rural heritage of the North East of England.
