The Ironbridge Gorge WW2 Weekend
23rd & 24th May 2020

Dale End Park, Ironbridge, Telford,

Shropshire, TF8 7DW

Our event has grown rapidly over the past few years, from humble beginnings based in a local pub to an event which attracted around 14,000 visitors for the 2019 weekend.

Set in the stunning backdrop of the Ironbridge Gorge, we recreate the experience of life during WW2 on both the home front and in occupied Europe with civilian, Allied and Axis re-enactors.

This is a non-profit making, charity fundraising event in which we raise funds for Pilgrim Bandits. So far last year's event raised over £10,000, with donations still to be collected.
