Step back in time this Sunday at Cusworth Hall

We are looking forward to travelling back in time 100 years on Sunday 23rd July 11am – 4pm with Doncaster 1914–18 project at their ‘Life on the Home Front Day’ at Cusworth Hall. This event is FREE and family friendly, so little Doncolites are very welcome.

Come and see what life was like on Doncaster’s Home Front in 1917, with living history recreations, the chance to try out costumes and crafts, taste wartime food or visit a pop-up farm and traditional fairground.


Meryl White will be recreating Grandma Abson’s cake stall of delicious home-baked treats

On the day, Cusworth will be turning back time for a wartime summer gala, revealing how our great-great-grandparents found fun, and supported the home front war effort, 100 years ago. Some of the events going on include:

– First World War Training camp
– Pickling demonstration by the WI
– Funfair with swing boats
– Miniature farm hosted by Land Girls
– Craft activities
– First World War baking (with free samples, see photo above!)
– Dressing up costumes
– The Great War on Tour pop-up museum
– Horseback demonstrations
– Free medical checks
– Music throughout the day
– And much more!
