Purchase Your Tickets

The buffet will feature food you could find back “home” – as long as you were part of the Allied Forces. American and British favorites will be joined by other flavors from their allies. Your meal will be complete with dessert served by our WITF Canteen Hostesses.

We also will have a LIVE performance from Corsair Blue Jazz Orchestra!

We suggest dressing in your most glamorous 1940s attire.

Plus, we’ll hear from Dr. Ian Isherwood, an associate professor of war and memory studies at Gettysburg College, about what day-to-day life was like in the Yorkshire Dales during WWII. How did they cope? How did life change? How did they keep up morale and support the troops and war effort?

Then, we’ll settle in for our preview screening of the season four premiere episode of All Creatures Great & Small.

About Season 4 of All Creatures Great & Small

Returning to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, All Creatures Great & Small Season 4 continues with timeless tales and heart-warming stories, picking up in springtime of 1940 with change on the horizon for everyone in Skeldale House.

James and Helen wonder when the right time might be to start a family, not knowing whether James will be called up to serve in the Royal Air Force (RAF). Tristan’s absence is felt by all, but no one more than Siegfried who attempts to hold the growing household, and himself, together as he braves this new world.

Mrs. Hall and Helen’s friendship blossoms as they look to the future and new trainee veterinary student Richard Carmody arrives, causing complications in the house.
