For the modellers, an extensive display of some top class models will be on display, bringing enthusiasts from around the world.

And for those seeking a little more glamour and refinement, the amazing Vintage Village, offers style galore, in an area dedicated to all things vintage. The V Marquee brings the 1940s to life with the best in entertainment from the period, while the Vintage Market Place offers world class fashion, homeware and civilian memorabilia from that period.
