    As this show takes place when the MVT would normally have their National Show at Kemble (now August Bank Holiday) I'm hoping I might see a few more of you from here, so here is the booking form for MV's.
    cheers

    Hi Paul, excuse my ignorance but this would be my first show. Is third party liability insurance what i would have with re-enactor insurance or just my normal vehicle cover?

    Hello Alex, and welcome to the forum.
    If your Jeep is insured with someone like Premium Choice (Roadsure) or Footman James you will be covered for liability at shows, similar to re-enactors insurance.

    If you just have a standard policy for social & domestic use you might need to speak with your insurer or change to one of these specialist companies.

    Prior to the show in June there is the Easter show on the same site if you are about.
    cheers
    Paul

    I'm pleased to confirm that the evenings entertainment have been sorted so I hope it will be to your liking.

    * Friday night: Music from the 40's by DJ Woodys War Department
    * Saturday night: The Forces Sweethearts singing our much loved war songs with singalong and supported by Woody.
