Dad's Army at IWM North

To coincide with the release of the Dad’s Army film, discover what life was like in the Home Guard.

06 February - 29 February 2016

Pack some sandwiches and dust off the pike! To coincide with the release of the Dad's Army film, discover what life was like in the Home Guard - also known as 'Dad's Army' - in a week of free family activities this February half term at IWM North.

Explore the interactive exhibition Horrible Histories®: Blitzed Brits and get up close with makeshift weapons, such as pikes and tin bombs, made by the real Home Guard.  Learn more about the real Dad's Army through free tours.

Get creative in daily craft sessions and make a wooden Home Front hero, or dress up as a member of the Home Guard or an Air Raid Warden.
