    Default National MVT Show - Wartime in the Vale 23 & 24 June, Ashdown WW2 Camp, Evesham

    Hi Guys,
    Following the success of Wartime in the Vale over the last three years, the South Midlands area of the MVT are pleased to announce this show has now been awarded National Show status by the Military Vehicle Trust for 2012. The venue with its central location and unique WW2 camp with its many nissen huts has grown in popularity with over 350 military wartime and post war vehicles attending in 2011.

    Now with National status / support, there will be an even greater selection of vehicles and re-enactors with a mix of military and civilian displays. For 2012 we are also hoping to attract more amphibious vehicles as its not often that these vehicles can go and have a play in the water, as we are fortunate to have access to a slipway into the River Avon in Evesham just 1.5 miles away.

    We are also pleased the Austin Champ Owners Club have selected this show for their Champ Camp, as 2012 is particularly special for them as they are celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Champ and nearly 100 Champs are already booked in with vehicles from the UK and abroad.

    There will be a large selection of traders, Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (applied for), children’s fair, cinema, entertainment in the marquee and various vehicles displays going on in the arena and the camp will be fully opened with all its displays and extensive range of air raid shelters, along with lots of visitors in period dress contributing to the atmosphere.

    For more information please visit the events page on: www.ashdowncamp.webs.com

    Forms for MVT members will be posted out in January with Greensheet Magazine.
    Non MVT members very welcome.

    Do please contact me if any queries.
    Thanks Paul

    It's a shame you're on the same weekend as A & E.

    Yes its an unfortunate clash.

    For the last three years we have run this show on the fourth weekend of June & so we have continued with that for 2012. Its been a similar situation for a few other events that we clash with like the first of the Seven Valley weekends & the Muckleburgh Collection but I believe we won't clash with another large regional show at Banbury or Tankfest again next year, not that has much effect on us as we are miles apart like A&E.

    Its always a tricky one sorting out dates as there is always something that will clash. Our vehicle entries are also include alot of Post War vehicles that would not be able to enter A&E.

    And both A&E & our event already have alot of support & I'm sure both will be a success.

    Paul, Neil & others, well done on building up the show & achieving the National Show status. At one of the earliest shows you ran there I remember an old boy with a Champ saying, "This will grow & will become the new Kemble"

    Too far to bring the Pig or Shorland so I'll just have to come in a Land Rover. I'm especially interested in what sort of Champ turn out there will be for their anniversary.

    Clive & Mark, thanks for the support.

    The Champers have been very supportive & very keen to help promote the event. By November they already had 87 Champs booked in, with about a dozen from Holland & other owners/visitors from Australia & Hawaii have already been sorting their accommodation. We are also giving them a large chunk of real estate to set up various displays, so Champ owners should have a great week.

    Would also just like to say well done Paul. Missed the first show but have been in attendance thereafter and have always been impressed. Will be there once again in 2012 and it is well worth a visit for anyone that hasn't been before. Keep up the good work!
