Don't miss the premier military show for East Anglia! It will be a great family day out. There will be hundreds of military vehicles across all eras - from push bikes to massive trucks that even make the tanks look small! The tanks and armoured vehicles will be taking part in the awesome and well renowned vehicle parades. In addition to the battle re-enactments, we also have a fantastic line up of classic cars, bikes and buses.

There will be an amazing turn out of living history with over 60 groups and nearly a thousand living history displays, depicting military life from many periods and nationalities. These historical re-enactors go to massive lengths to represent history as accurately and authentically as possible and are always happy to answer your questions or demonstrate equipment, so don’t be afraid to ask.

This is a unique opportunity to see how the soldiers of different nationalities and time periods lived and to get close to the weapons, equipment and atmosphere of the time.

There will be arena activities taking place throughout the day. As always, there will be very large and very loud battles demonstrations - and don’t forget to join in the kids' marching drill.

There's so much more for the kids to get involved in, as well as all the stuff to watch, see and explore, there's also the vintage fair ground and many other activities. What better way is there for the younger generation to learn about our history than to hear about it from those who made it? Our wonderful veterans are always happy to tell their own story.

Back by popular demand will be our wonderful live 'wartime' entertainment in our huge marquee all day, including music and a 40s fashion show.

Free parking.
