Spen Valley at Eden Camp Museum.

Our Caravanning group (Spen Valley) are going to have a long weekend at a `Living` War Museum.

Eden Camp Museum
Although Chris and I are not running the event, but we are `doing` the entertainment on two of the nights, this is what we have got planed so far. (Here are some of my Facebook adverts as well)
You need to be members of The Camping and Caravanning Club to stay.
Ever wondered what it would be like to, live in a prisoner of war camp or be part of Dad`s Army? Now`s your chance….. Join Spen Valley and let your hosts, `Captain` Richard `Mainwaring` and `Dame Vera` Marion lead you though a long weekend of 1940`s nostalgia in this ‘’living” Museum making it a treat to remember war time rations, black outs and communal sing-a-longs. 
It`s £12.00 per unit night, but this includes entrance into the museum, which is normally £7.00 per adult. So this is great value!!! And although we have negotiated an extra nights camping. We must all be off site by 12.00 noon Monday
The Hut last time
We will have one of the huts for all 3 nights, Richard and Marion will be running Saturday night event, but they seem to be keeping secret what they are actually doing It does involve a 1940`s type buffet supper, and I guess bingo and a quiz.
Rendezvous and Relax poster
On Friday Chris and mine opening night is billed as “Rendezvous and Relax”, where people will just settle in and meet friends, old and new. It will be quite casual~ back ground music and may be a quiz (Or not)
Songs That War Taught Us poster
Sunday Night and we will be presenting under the Club night name of “Ballroom After The Blitz” Songs That War Taught Us, Songs that have being influenced by a hundred years of War and Peace, which really can cover just about everything I guess, but I`m thinking towards songs like; Knocking On Heavens Door (Bob Dylan), The Call Up (The Clash), Oliver’s Army (Elvis Costello) and of course my mates The Lost Souls~ Johnny Ain’t Coming  
            .
Eden Camp Museum is at Malton, Pickering, North Yorkshire (UK) From the A64 north of York, take the A169 and follow brown tourist signs. Post code YO17 6RT. And runs from 16th to 18th October 2016.

I came across this super calendar rising money for The Sophie Lancaster Foundation a few weeks ago and decided to buy one for myself. ...
