Past event – October Half Term Activities, Duxford, Cambridgeshire


This year marks the 70th anniversary of the famous Dambusters Raid.

11am to 3pm daily in front of the Lancaster in AirSpace.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the famous Dambusters Raid.

In the shadows of the Lancaster bomber in AirSpace, our costumed interpreter will tell the story of the Dambusters Raid, not just through spoken word but also using models, paintings and the science of the mission.

See whether you could hit the dam with our specially-commissioned interactive model, try on mini-RAF uniforms, see and hold objects that would have been used by members of Bomber Command and get hands-on with our craft activity.

On selected days (Sunday 27, Tuesday 29, Wednesday 30 and Thursday 31 October), meet veterans from a wide range of military conflicts who will share with you their personal memories of their time at war.
