“Best event of its type”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

This is by far the best WW2 re-enacting event the UK now has, and to combine it with a flying show makes it above-and-beyond what most people can expect. The combination of the two is mostly unique and attracts different audiences and I think that helps. I have attended the show twice now as a re-enactor and am pleased to hear it is a three-day event in 2013.

“A Great Show”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

A fantastic day out - the Vulcan made it even more special. Despite the crowds, there was room to move about and good car park handling. Even getting away at the end of the day was fairly painfree!

“WWII re-enacted..... superb”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

A really great day out. The dedication and realism of the encampments are outstanding. The end of show mock battle has to be seen to be believed. The groups do a fantastic job of keeping the memories and sacrifices of our forebears alive. Excellent stuff.

“Deserved 'Victory' for the organisers”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

BRILLIANT day out, WAY better than we expected. ONLY downer was that the Vulcan display was by far to short (Duxford airshow must have been more important) and to far away from crowdline. (Watched aircraft from my home in South Wigston on the Saturday, went to the show Sunday) Got better view of flying at home!
That said....BRILLIANT SHOW!

“Victory Show”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

A good show marred by insufficient toilets, no toilet rolls, no soap and toilets filthy! Also, not enough rubbish bins and the ones that were available were overflowing! Organisers take note - you need to up your game!
