As per normal a little show that just seems to grow and grow entertainment all day good beer tent that don't rape on the prices like some shows! Campers are now in the carpark which gives more space for the military vehicles. And to tip it all the challenger was whizzing around. Fab fireworks on the Sunday as well =D>read more

D Troop, No.3 Commando (Moonlight Raiders) had an invite to come to this show. We had a thoroughly enjoyable 4 days there, loving the relaxed friendly atmosphere. We met up with Tommy Atkins Society and a great group of Germans, and although the skirmish didn't go perfectly (due to our toys not wanting to play as they should) we still had a really good bit of fun in the arena. Having spoken to both other groups at the show, we sincerely would like to grow the reenactment part into something bigger next year.read more
