What can I expect at the Yanks Are Back In Saddleworth?

T his very popular annual event was first staged 17 years ago to celebrate the local filming of the Hollywood movie 'YANKS' in 1979 starring Richard Gere. Many locations in Uppermill and neighbouring Dobcross were used in the film. Just like the movie set, living history reenactors and vintage military vehicles owners recreate an atmosphere of Wartime Britain. Lots of wartime entertainment, period stalls, dancing, military vehicle parade and much, much more - !
