Staffordshire's VC's
Events at The Staffordshire Regiment
Museum

Come and join us at The Staffordshire Regiment Museum and experience one of our many events which we put on throughout the year. We offer a very busy and varied calendar of events ranging from re-enactments, themed displays and many many more.

We are a warm and friendly museum and welcome all visitors of any age, but don’t take our word for it, come and see for yourselves. Have a look at our events list below and call the number at the bottom of the page to book your tickets now or for more information.




Please be aware that most of our events are held thanks to the co-operation & participation of a large number of volunteers, be they museum personnel or members of the re-enactment community. As such, event content may be subject to last minute changes.
Cancellations. It would be rare for us to cancel an event ‘on the day’. However, as with museum visits in general, if you are travelling some distance, we would advise contacting us beforehand to confirm.
Most of our event content takes place outside and are therefore subject to the prevailing weather conditions. All events take place between 10 a.m - 4p.m. (1000 – 1600) unless otherwise stated

Wartime Christmas

Come along and join the soldiers and civilians from WWI and WWII as they celebrate Christmas on the front lines and at home too.

Will there be a truce in the trenches between the Tommies and the Germans? Of maybe you can hear the enemy singing across no mans land from the firestep as you stand and keep watch?

Beware… If the Luftwaffe decide to drop some unwanted Christmas presents, you may have to take cover in our public air raid shelter.

There will be Christmas crafts for the kids to do and of course our special Watchman Hunt. If we are very lucky the ladies who are holding down the home front will have made us a lovely Christmas dinner, all in line with our ration allowance of course. Rumour has it that a certain gentleman with a white beard and red suit will make an appearance at this event.
