Dig for Victory

Thu 30th Aug - Sun 2nd Sep

Now in its fourth year, Dig for Victory returns from Thursday 30th August to Sunday 2nd September 2018.

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 farm will again be buzzing with activity – from gardening to wartime recipes and cooking, Land Girls to lumberjills, make do and mend to military vehicles and a host of hands-on activities – make sure you don’t miss any of them! We’ll have animals, music, machinery and Home Guard plus much more!
