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.

Another fantastic year for The Victory Show. I am sure I speak for everyone who attended this year that the weather was a bit of a worry to start with, but the rain did hold off and we even got a bit of sunshine which was very pleasant. The show is very well organised as usual, this year had the... More

Car park was a bit of a trek with push chair and small grandchildren but the show was worth it. Never seen so many WWII vehicles and all the exhibitors were very friendly and knowledegeable. Highlights were the tank battle and the Spitfire.
