The Radar Room

The 1940s was a time when there were enormous leaps forward in technology, some of which we are able to show with our exhibits.  Whilst there exist many interesting collections of 1940s electronics in museums country wide, in our opinion, there is nothing quite like seeing an active image on a period cathode ray tube, or hearing morse, music or speech being relayed (albeit at a very short distance) over the airwaves. (Using OFCOM allocated frequencies and ultra-low power levels) Hence we believe that  our wartime electronics ‘experience’ is far more interesting and realistic than some.

UK Police re-enactment group

We are small group that attends events such as Llandudno Victorian weekend, East Lancashire Railway, war weekend, Lytham 1940s weekend. Recreating that period when a policeman or women was feared when he or she would walk down a street moving spiv’s on, feeling the collar of the local miscreants. and occasionally battling with suffragettes! The long hot or cold days on point duty and checking to ensure vehicles had the correct documents. And not to forget checking the local public house was obeying the weights and measures act (well that’s my excuse) We never do anything that comprises impersonating a police officer with intend to commit a criminal act.
