WWI weekend at Pembrey Country Park

Start Date: 05-05-2019
End Date: 06-05-2019

Your Family can be taken back in time to World War time at Pembrey Country Park over this May Bank Holiday Weekend.

Thousands of visitors are expected to turn out to see infantry, cavalry, medical services, munitionettes, period police officers and civilians from that era interacting with each other. There will also event be a WWI field hospital will be staged, complete with medical equipment.

This is a two-day event on Sunday and Monday, and promises to be bigger and better than last year giving visitors an insight into what it was like living during that period.

Visitors will also be able to meet the Yeomanry and their mounts, be instructed on the use of arms and equipment and learn about the shady activities of the members of 'La Dame Blanche' (The White Lady).

There will be a mix of living history and talks will be delivered by historians, experts and authors on the fighting at Mametz and the engineering projects built by conscientious objectors as well as the general history of Pembrey munitions factory.

Dyfed Archaelogical Trust will also be there to provide information on the history of the park.

The miniature railway will also be open over the bank holiday weekend, weather permitting.
