New this year is DEFEND FIFE WW2 festival 29th & 30th September, 2 days on 2 sites.
Shed47 will be running trains on both days, on both railways. Lathalmond Railway Museum open, and we're also taking part in the battle! See the narrow gauge railway supply the army. Lathalmond Wartime exhibition at the weighbridge & model railway open too.
If you enjoyed Defend Dunfermline (Obrona Miasta) last year you are in for a treat! . Developed from the very successful Defend Dunfermline event in 2017, the expanded event hosted at the Scottish Vintage Bus Museum site promises to be a great weekend, turning the clock back to the 1940s.
Discover the story of 1940s Dunfermline, which had its defences strengthened in the war years against infiltration from enemy tanks and paratroopers. Investigate the recently unearthed confidential maps and plans, drawn up by the allied Polish armies, who were exiled to Scotland during World War II. These plans - which were an enforcement of the roadblocks, checkpoints and fighting positions created by Dunfermline's home guard - were prepared in the result of ultimate invasion. The festival will retell this interesting story through the eyes of the Scottish and Polish soldiers who worked hard to ensure Fife remained protected. More to see and do including invasion & battle each day, historic re-enactors, vintage vehicles, stalls & exhibitions, and lots, lots more!
Regular free bus service from Dunfermline Bus Station.
