Pickering war weekend

Pickering war weekend


This year 2017 it will be on the 13th to the 15th October. The whole of Pickering is decorated and themed towards the second World War. The railway is the main attraction for this, and there are many vintage vehicles. There are dances, parties and theatre. Approx 90% of the visitors will be dressed in period costume.

Here at the site of the old Pickering Trout Lake, the car parks are turned into a large market with 1940's stalls. The lake has been filled in, with a large trading/camping area behind the old building. We also offer caravanning and camping in a large field at the side of the railway at Moorland Trout Farm. This field is a short 10 minute walk to the center of town, also 10 minutes to the school for the main dance. The cost for caravan / campers is £50 for any three nights, or part off. £15 for any extra nights. Deposit of £30 secures your space. Discounts available for groups of 6 plus.
