An unforgettable day out and fantastic experience for the everyone as the “Yanks” set up camp in the grounds of Saddleworth School in Uppermill, Saddleworth. This is a huge event that winds back the clock across the whole area taking you right back to World War Two!!!

There are NO further fees to enter the main event at Saddleworth school as this has been included in the price of the trip.

This very popular annual event was first staged 17 years ago to celebrate the local filming of the Hollywood movie “YANKS” in 1979 starring Richard Gere. Many locations in Uppermill and neighbouring Dobcross were used in the film. Just like the movie set,

Living history reenactors and vintage military vehicles owners recreate an atmosphere of Wartime Britain. Lots of wartime entertainment, period stalls, dancing, military vehicle parade and much, much more…!
