Wartime Christmas Weekend at the Royal Engineers Museum
27th November - 28th November 2021
Join us for Our Wartime Christmas weekend. On 27 and 28 November the Royal Engineers Museum travels back in time to explore how Christmas was celebrated during the Second World War.
Immerse yourself in the festivities and learn to Lindy Hop, watch live demonstrations or browse our market for festive handicrafts & last minute treats. Meet reenactors and learn about the role of animals and discover how ordinary people helped the war effort on the Home Front. We’ll also be joined by the Brompton & Invicta Military Wives Choir as they sing traditional carols.
No visit is complete without a trip to see Sapper Santa’s Grotto & Workshop, where little ones can write letters, receive a special gift and create their own Christmas treasures.
Entry to the event is included in standard admission prices. Family activities & Sapper Santa’s Grotto cost £3 each in addition to standard admission prices. The event runs from 10am – 5pm, with last admission at 4pm.
Limited parking is available at the Museum – the nearest public car park is at Medway Park. The nearest train station is Gillingham Station & the nearest bus stop is at the King Charles Hotel.
