The Camp

Wood Lane



Home of the popular Ramsey 1940s Weekend

The Camp is a unique site where the clock is often turned back, usually to the 1940s but not always. Built as a searchlight battery unit in 1939, the Camp is situated on the outskirts of Ramsey and holds events all year round, most famously in August when the 10 acre site attracts thousands of visitors to the Ramsey 1940s weekend. But there's far more to the Camp. The grounds, NAAFI, parade of shops and Drill Hall are all maintained and renovated by a band of dedicated volunteers and are open for hire all year round to private, community and commercial parties.



The countdown has begun! Things are ramping up here at the Camp. The organisation of this years 1940s Weekend is well underway with acts booked, stall bookings going mad and more reenactors then ever before asking to come. In addition to all the normal attractions you will be able to tour the battlefield trenches both before and after the battle each day, find out what it was really like to take cover in an air raid shelter and even book your 1940s themed wedding!!
