The RAF Harrowbeer 1940s Weekend is a free event for all to attend. It is held on ‘common land’ on Dartmoor which means even if we could, we are not able to charge for parking or entrance. Believe it or not, the event costs around £4,000 to put on and we rely entirely on sponsorship and donations from visitors to meet these costs. You can help by making a donation to our funds now, using one of the ways listed below.


You can help support our event by making a donation to our funds. Any amount can be donated, small or large, so please donate now! As a guide, similar 1940s events where an admission charge is made, the cost is anywhere between £5 – £10 per person.
