Tank Musuem - Living History Event Warfare Through The Ages - 6 & 7 August

See the history of warfare in action from Medieval to Modern day with living history encampments, drills, weaponry displays, firearms evolution and period battles.

We have assembled some of the very best re-enactment groups in the UK, including the Sealed Knot, the Southern Skirmish Association and the elite units for the Napoleonic Association.

Site opens at 9am each day. Enjoy a packed programme of activities from 10am as we take you on a tour of history with drill displays, battle re-enactment and spectacular sieges.

Each group will be camped around the battlefield, you will be free to wander around find out what life was like for soldiers and civilians alike from 1415 to 1945.

During each day there will be a grand parade of all of our re-enactment groups bringing everyone together for a fantastic photographic opportunity during a short drum-head memorial to remember our fallen soldiers and civilians throughout conflicts past and present. 

The final arena display will be a 30 minute display from The Tank Museum*. 

*The appearance of all our historic machines in the display is subject to mechanical availability on the day. 

Annual Passes ARE valid for this event.
