More than Military Vehicles at War and Peace Revival

war&peaceThe War and Peace Revival will welcome visitors today, Sat 20th & Sunday 21st July, to what will be the biggest show of its kind in the world, featuring action-packed battle re-enactments, static displays, classic civilian and military vehicles, vintage fashions and the songs, sounds and smells of wartime.

Visitors to the new show will be able to see many of the expected War and Peace attractions including living history, military vehicles, meeting WW2 and other veterans, vintage civilian entertainment, trade stands, celebrities, battle re-enactments and military models.

Thousands of military vehicles will gather from around the world representing the armies of the 20th century, including tanks, artillery, armoured and amphibious vehicles, cars, Jeeps, bicycles and motorbikes, emergency and commercial vehicles – and lots more. Living History scenes will give a unique picture of life in conflict from WW1 to the present – see the British living in trenches, GIs in Vietnam, Russians relaxing with an accordion after a hard day in battle, or the Home Guard.

Meanwhile the Spitfire tea room will be the scene of our themed café, decorated in 40s style (but without the rationing!). Sit back and enjoy tea and cakes or even breakfast and lunch surrounded by our new vintage civilian features. The Jazz bar will give new spark to the days and the nights, while the V Marquee brings the 1930s – 1960s to life with the best in entertainment from the period. There will be short “pop-up” performances from Elvis, Paul Harper with his Banjo, wartime songs from the swingtime Sweethearts, sing-a-long sessions from Luna Nightingale, The PeekaBoos with their hilarious CanCan dance, and a specially formed 8 to 10 piece swing dance troupe we are naming the “Revival Jivers”.
