With more than 60,000 visitors each year arriving at the Museum, our location is becoming ever more popular. The 2020 VE Day Celebration Weekend of 8th, 9th, 10th May 2020 will be our busiest event ever.
The Vintage Marketplace
For the duration of the weekend, we will be offering trade stand space for suitable businesses and organisations in our Vintage Marketplace area. We would love to work with businesses and organisations that will be a good fit for the theme of this important celebration.
The Vintage Marketplace will be situated at the core of the Museum, on hard standing and close by the main traffic areas of visitors.
