I'm pleased to announce that the South Midlands area of the MVT will be hosting this show again on 22 & 23 June. Whilst its not the National Show on this occasion, the MVT have kindly given us a substantial grant towards our costs.
With all the positive press coverage we've had, we are planning for an even bigger turnout. Ok we won't have as many Champs as last year but I'm sure that as we will also be celebrating 65 Years of Land Rovers we should still reach around 400 military vehicles.
I'm also hopeful that we will have a great display in the skies, as I spoke with the RAF Events Team today ref our application for the BBMF & was told that we are due to have the Spitfire, Hurricane & Lancaster on the Saturday & the Dakota on the Sunday! Nearly fell off my chair when told. Obviously its subject to confirmation due mid-Feb.
Our Landowner Bob James has also been busy around the camp & has just built three more nissen huts to house more displays. 1st one is a new Home Front Display, 2nd for a new RAF Operations room & 3rd is yet to be decided, suggestions on a post card please as they say. (See pic below, but excuse my dodgy cut & paste for the new nissens, will hopefully take a new aerial pic later in the year)
He's also moved the Pickett-Hamilton Fort to the middle of the arena to make for a more interesting battle.
If you've not been before we've got a decent sized arena, the size of a football pitch with a couple of mounds of earth to drive over.
As always we are very keen to include vehicles within dioramas rather than just lined up, so if you are happy to park up with an appropriate group or have any suggestion then please let me know.
