Maiden Newton at War
Maiden Newton at War is an event run by '1940s Maiden Newton' to raise funds for local charities and good causes.
The premier re-enactor event in Dorset just gets better and better, and it's not only the committee that think so. We have been overwhelmed with the sheer number of compliments and congratulations on a great event.
Throughout the weekend, both residents and visitors are encouraged to wear typical 1940/WWII fashion
We would like to encourage our visitors to join in the fun by dressing in period clothing or uniforms. Please do not wear German uniform or any Nazi paraphernalia as this may cause offence and you may not be permitted to enter the site. Do not bring weapons onto the site. Invited re-enactors representing many units and nationalities will be wearing their uniforms and carrying licensed weapons under strict control.
