Let us take you back through the ages and experience the conflicts and sacrifices of war.  Featuring re-enactments portraying the clashing swords of the Vikings, the musket shots and bugles of the American Civil War, the political issues of the Spanish Civil War, WW2 which was one of the largest and bloodiest battles in human history and finally culminating with the Vietnam War. 

Join our action-packed days incorporating battles in two arenas, living history displays exhibiting both genuine and replica equipment; weapons, military vehicles, uniforms etc.  Visit specialist and general trade stands, see firing displays, sword fighting, axe throwing and experience the thrill of a ride in an armoured tank.  The event will also feature singers showcasing music throughout the ages (they will also be performing in the evenings for those staying onsite), various catering outlets to suit all the family and a licensed bar with stage for live performances.  This truly is a festival of commemoration and an opportunity for the whole family to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of history.
