Visitors to the Staffordshire Regiment Museum on August 3 will be able to enjoy cake while they read a 1914 newspaper and listen to the sound of a pianist playing period music.

There will also be stalls selling vintage items as well as meeting a number of ‘famous faces’ including Charlie Chaplin and HRH The King.

A spokesperson added: “The bar will be serving fantastic local brews and there will also be a perennially popular hog roast.

“With live music, drama and dancing from local children, evocative performances from the Icknield Male Voice Choir , WWI themed entertainment and re-enactors plus the museum collections and WW1 trench system, this will be a great day out for the whole family.

“We’ll all be wearing our best 1914 inspired dresses, suits and hats, and we’d be delighted if you’d join in too!”

Children and adults alike will enjoy the fantastic Edwardian fairground rides and the Museum

There will also be Edwardian fairground fun for younger visitors.

The event runs from 10am to 5pm. Entry is £4 for adults, £2.50 for children under 16 and all concessions.
