1940s’, Community and Corporate Events start right here!

We get involved in all sorts of stuff!

We hold lots of mini events here at The Kitchen Front… 1940s’ tea room weekends, history talks, art exhibitions, dances and fund raising events. We love our community and we believe in The Kindness Economy.


We support programmes for local community groups and schools with art projects and regularly raise funds for local charities. You can find us at 1940s’ re-enactment events where we present ourselves as American Red Cross Volunteers, known as the Donut Dollies where we serve real coffee and donuts to the troops and do education displays about food and rationing.

So, keep an eye out!  It is always busy in here because there is always something going on. If you would like to use our facilities and services or book a private party, please let us know. We are ready to dive back into the 1940s’ at anytime!


The time has come for us to be working with our business partners again after a tough couple of years. Here in Bude, we have a fantastic amount of accommodations, superb restaurants, soft and hard adventure, history, heritage and creative activities. If you are looking to recognise and reward, or ‘team build’, we can help you get creative, dive into heritage and history and wrap it up with great adventure and activities. It starts right here in our nostalgic 1940s’ business! Please call us for a chat on  01288 350107.

One for 2023…
