More than 300 tanks and military vehicles will be on site giving you the opportunity to talk to the owners, see the vehicles close up – and see many of them in action on the huge main battlefield. Military helicopters will be landing and taking off over the three days and each day there will be a Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) flyover. On Saturday it will be the Spitfire, Sunday will be the Hurricane, and Monday it will be the helicopter. Monday is also Classic Car Monday.

Exciting demonstrations will be going on throughout the long weekend. Both on the main field and in the arena amid the incredible display of military vehicles. These shows include the big tank exercises when they let loose the biggest and heaviest Main Battle Tanks outside of the British Army. The CVR(T) tank display will perform high speed mobility demonstrations that will leave you breathless. These are amongst the fastest tanks in the world and they will be roaring through massive explosions and flames for visitors’ entertainment!
