    Shed Features

    My "shed" was built to form part of a wartime Kent village, called Trentham. It has appeared at Gears of Change in Birchington, and for several years at the War & Peace Revival held on Folkestone Racecourse, and at the Military Odyssey on Detling County Showground. The pub and fittings takes two van-loads to deliver to site. It takes help over 2 days to erect it and fit it out. It comes to life when the villagers, and other re- enactors come to enjoy a drink. Re-enactors bring in their own drinks, which we then serve into period glassware. This allows members of the public to see a piece of home front life, and to ask questions. It also enables true veterans to swap real war stories. When the show closes, we are joined by our locals, until we chuck them out.

    Other Shed info

    It has been constructed from a plethora of materials to aid portability, and yet be strong enough for when villagers or visitors forget about it being a temporary building. Based on a 1"X 1" steel market traders' frame, timber, plywood, and vacuum formed plastic. The fixtures and fittings are either pre-war, wartime, or thereabouts to give an authentic feel. Being 20' x 12' the first time it went up, was the first time it had even been put together as I can only get a quarter of it up in my back yard.
