The summer show season of 2017 is well and truly underway. Following on from Wicksteed at War two weeks ago, we’ve headed down to Dorset for Tankfest 2017. Here’s a small taster of what to expect this weekend.
This will be our third year attending Tankfest, and we’re very excited to be coming back. The show is hosted by The Tank Museum at Bovington, Dorset, and showcases a massive selection of tanks and other armoured vehicles. In addition to this, there are always great battle re-enactments and many other activities to entertain everyone.
As in previous years, the Museum Director will open the show and the Saturday will begin with an impressive display of modern main battle tanks showing off their speed and manoeuvrability. This year, there’s a focus on D-Day and the battles in Normandy in 1944. Several German and Allied WW2 tanks and vehicles will be putting on some great displays. On the Sunday, there will also be displays from Cold War-era re-enactment groups. As if all this wasn’t enough, there will be an exhibition of some of the latest British armour too! In fact, the show is so popular that tickets have already sold out!
Of course, Epic Militaria will be at the show in force also. We’re taking our full stall with an excellent selection of products. With items ranging from WW2 German and Allied re-enactment right up to modern kit and military surplus, we’ve got something to suit pretty much any taste or requirement. We’ve been busy choosing and picking what to bring with us and we’re confident we’ve chosen well. We’ll be at our usual spot right next to the main arena, so why not come and pay us a visit? Our dedicated team would love to meet you and kit you out with some great products.
We look forward to seeing you there!
