5-4-3-2-1 Blast Off… Come & Celebrate Man Strolling On The Moon Today

Just a reminder that today, from 2pm, we will be recreating Man’s First Walk On The Moon in the sandpit of the children’s play area next to the sports field. Yesterdays’ dress rehearsal went quite well, with only three re-enactors hospitalised after their pretend rocket went off course and crash landed on the swings. It’s likely to be a day to remember, so see you there…. The Beckworth & Crewbury Historical Re-enactors

Come & Celebrate The 100th Anniversary Of Man Taking A Stroll On The Moon

Just a reminder that next Saturday, from 2pm, we will be recreating what was probably Man’s First Walk On The Moon in the sandpit of the childrens play area next to the sports field. This is our most ambitious and most daring re-enactment yet and will feature a scale model of the Apollo 11 rocket pretending to take off (from the car park), simulate flying about a bit and then quickly touching down on the moon (the sand pit). From there our two intrepid “astronauts” Lee Armstrong and Buzz Aldridge will act out descending to the moons surface (the sand pit) to take samples of moon dust (sand) and to pitch a tent… Then after an hour or so of walking and jumping about it’ll be back in the rocket to pretend to come home to Earth and splash down in the pond. We’ve even got mock ups of moon rocks and aliens played by many of our members. Its a day to remember, so see you next weekend and lets make (re-enact) history together…. The Beckworth & Crewbury Historical Re-enactors
