I live in a village very near to the show and we can see the planes very clearly and they are stunning, every year brilliant old planes and a finale of something special , last year the euro fighter was awesome. From what we can see of the actual ground show it looks amazing with lots of troops, maneuvers and... More

I attended this event mainly because of the air show, which was great fun, interesting planes displayed. Loved the overall feel of the day, some quirky stalls and ground displays, really set the atmosphere.

Wow what a day out. Went on a sunny day in September and had a truly fantastic time. A real boys' trip. I took my 10 year old son and we couldn't believe the amount of kit, vehicles, planes, camps - everything was there. You can just walk around from one armed encampment to another talking to so many knowledgeable... More

Be prepared for a spectacular and entertaining day for all ages. You don't even have to be a WWII officianado to enjoy this show. There are many restored vehicles: vintage cars; vans; lorries; jeeps and tanks. Steam-driven carousels, steamrollers, steam-driven threshing engines and an almost constant aerial display by WWII aircraft and a few more modern ones. Radio-controlled models also... More

From a reenactor / living historian's point-of-view, this is by far the best event of the calendar, with a lot of thought put into accommodating the participants as well as the visitors. With the extension to a three-day event this year, there was extra time to get things ready and have the opportunity for school kids to get a good... More

We have never been to this event before but decided to take my mother. What a great day that bought back many happy memories of her childhood. Really well organised, re enactment area, battle, air show, 1940's live music, stalls and much more as well gave a day out that was real value or money. Would certainly go again.
