Bude at War

A new event in 2023 commemorates the 80th Year since the Americans first came to Bude, Cornwall to train for D-Day on our beaches and cliffs.

Friday to Sunday 15th – 17th September 2023 will see a whole town 1940s weekend take place in Bude, with educational programmes for children, the Enigma machine from Bletchley Park, a GI Dance, fantastic living history and re-enactment groups with original WWII vehicles and speeches from prominent figures of the day.

It is an opportunity to step back in time as all the town will be waiting to greet you. Bude at War is run by volunteers and completely free to attend, (some activities/sessions need pre-booked tickets) and a programme can be purchased locally.  It will a wonderful opportunity to commemorate a very pivotal time in history, and enjoy all the Bude has to offer.
