Military re-enactments and historic vehicles and aircraft will be part of a World at War Weekend in Weston-super-Mare.

The Helicopter Museum, in Locking Moor Road, will put on the event which will feature living history camps as well as entertainment from musical trip The Cat’s Pyjamas.

Museum volunteer and show organiser Simon Parks-Lockett said: “Visitors will be taken back in time to explore Ally and Axis World War Two encampments, home front exhibitions, a field hospital, Vietnam military village and German command centre.”

Special guests are also lined up to appear including last surviving Dambuster George ‘Johnny’ Johnson, one-armed motorcycle racer Chris Ganley and Invictus Games athlete Corie Mapp.

Charities set to benefit from the event include Blesma, The Limbless Veterans, Royal British Legion and Help for Heroes.

The World at War Weekend will run from 10am-5.30pm tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday.
