Dig for Victory

Thu 31st Aug - Sun 3rd Sep

Now in the third year, year Dig for Victory returns from Thursday 31st August to Sunday 3rd September 2017.

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!

Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter for more information as plans develop for our second ever Dig for Victory event.

As with all daytime events, you can use your Unlimited Pass!
