Dig for Victory is the first event in the museum's Great North Festival of Agriculture. The event is focused in and around the 1940s Farm and tells the story of life on the Home Front and the vital support role the British countryside played during the Second World War.
The farm will again be buzzing with activity – from gardening to wartime recipes and cooking, Land Girls to lumberjills, make do and mend to military vehicles and a host of hands-on activities – make sure you don’t miss any of them! They'll have animals, music, machinery and Home Guard plus much more!
The month-long Festival of Agriculture celebrates the agricultural and rural heritage of the North East of England.
