    Family Ticket: 2 adults, 3 children; Child Ticket: aged 5-15; Under 5: FREE

    Some 640,000 British women either volunteered or were conscripted into the British Armed Services during the Second World War, playing an invaluable role as codebreakers, secret agents, pilots, plotters, and also as ground-breaking war correspondents. In this discussion, three experts will discuss the role of women in the war and the way they transformed society as a consequence.

    Outdoor Programme Event

    The Outdoor Programme daily ticket gives you access to everything on the festival's massive Outdoor Programme.

    We have talks on the IPGL and History Hit Outdoor Stages, the Living History encampments and static displays, Speaker's Corner talks, performances from the History Tellers and others, live music, two bars, the Emporium, book shops and numerous cafes and food stalls. Anyone with an Outdoor Programme ticket can access up to twenty-five different scheduled events on any one day, so it is truly great value.

    For those wishing to experience The Trench, Sword School and Children's Creative History events, these are ticketed separately and need to be pre-booked. Rides on the Vintage Fairground are payable at the ride.

    Tickets to individual events in the Hiscox and Smith & Williamson tents also provide access to the Outdoor Programme on that particular day (1 person per ticket).
