The Heugh Battery Museum on the Headland will welcome vehicles of all shapes and sizes from the Armed Forces, along with history re-enactors plus live music and freshly cooked food.

It takes place on Saturday, April 16, at 10am to 4pm, and will raise money towards the running of the museum which tells the story of the Bombardment of Hartlepool in 1914.

Manager Diane Stephens said: “There will be lots of re-enactors with vehicles and equipment to show visitors, as well as a fully working field kitchen. Radio Persicola Band will be playing great tunes to sing along to and have a boogie woogie!
