Yanks are back in Saddleworth

An unforgettable day out and fantastic experience for the everyone as the “Yanks” set up camp in the grounds of Saddleworth School in Uppermill, Saddleworth. This is a huge event that winds back the clock across the whole area taking you right back to World War Two!!!

This very popular annual event was first staged 19 years ago to celebrate the local filming of the Hollywood movie “YANKS” in 1979 starring Richard Gere. Many locations in Uppermill and neighbouring Dobcross were used in the film. Just like the movie set, living history reenactors and vintage military vehicles owners recreate an atmosphere of Wartime Britain. Lots of wartime entertainment, period stalls, dancing, military.

Saturday night Victory Dance at Saddleworth High school at 7.30pm £15 each includes wartime supper. Tickets in Advance.
