The free event ran on Saturday and Sunday, with entertainment provided by Littleport Lyrics and refreshments from Littleport WI.

It was hosted by the village’s 1914-2014 Committee and saw costumed re-enactors, information stands and information on villagers who served in the conflict.

There was also an exhibition of work by pupils of Littleport Community Primary School and a display by the Field Theatre Group in light of their war-inspired recent production, Field of War.
