  2. Good Evening all My name is Ciaran; I am the events coordinator at the mental health charity Havering Mind. In July this year we will be holding our 4th annual ‘Wings & Wheels’ Family Festival at Damyns Hall Aerodrome Upminster, on Sunday 22nd July. In the previous 3 years of running this event we have had great success with an estimated 4000 people attending each year, as well as 100s of cars, bikes and other vehicles on display, fun fair, beer tent, stalls, the local radio station and live music throughout the day. It has become a well-recognised and great family day out in Havering. Last year we successfully expanded to incorporate Military Vehicles. This year we will be doing the same, with more space dedicated to a ‘Military Zone’ with Living history exhibits also now attending. Military vehicles and living history exhibitors will be able to camp from Friday 20th July, 12 noon onwards until Monday 23rd, 12 noon. As well as showing your vehicles to the public on Sunday 22nd, there will be food, bar and a free live music concert on Saturday evening for exhibitors! See attached poster for more information. If you are travelling to the War and Peace Revival, which opens on 24th July, then why not use this as a convenient break on your journey? The airfield is just off the M25, and only 5.5 miles from the Dartford crossing. Would you like to exhibit at our event? If so, please contact me for more information. ciaran.white@haveringmind.org.uk
  3. With out a doubt one of the best shows of the year, Guy Martins MkIV Replica Tank Deborah II, WWI Camp & WWII re-enactments, 500+ military vehicles, including the Bob James Collection on show & post-war. BBMF flypast, Spitfire with working merlin engine, Horse-Drawn WWI GS Wagon, Life size WWII camp, over 50 Stalls selling Parts, Collectables, Uniforms & Militaria of all shapes and sizes.

  4. Dear All, This is just a little advance notice & hopefully to put the date in your diaries for Tracks to the Trenches #3 at Apedale, Staffordshire, UK. 13-15th July 2018 At the moment we are still shaping the event format - but we hope to build on our successful 2014 and 2016 events & deliver our fitting end to the First World War Centenary. This may be the last "Tracks to the Trenches" event in this format. Please see www.ww1-event.org - this should be updated as we start to progress the event further. At this very early stage we would be keen to establish further contact with interested vehicle owners and exhibitors of other related items/equipment. Best regards, Gareth
  5. Good Evening I am a new member on this site. My name is Ciaran and I am one of the organisers of the Wings & Wheels Car, Bike & Military Vehicle Show. This event takes place on Sunday 16th July at Damyns Hall Aerodrome, Upminster, ESSEX, RM14 2TN. This year we are expanding to now incorporate Military Vehicles! As the Military and Flying machines show decided not to return to Damyns Hall, it was felt that there would be a demand both from the public and the exhibitors to see military vehicles at the airfield again. Wings & Wheels is already a well established event at Damyns Hall, with over 300 cars and bikes on display last year, as well as live music, beer tent, stalls, food vendors, helicopter rides, trial flights and a range of family entertainment. Military vehicles will be able to camp from Friday 14th, 12 noon onwards until Monday 17th, 12 noon. As well as showing your vehicles to the public on Sunday 16th, there will be food, bar and a free live music concert on Saturday evening for exhibitors! For more information or to register your vehicle please visit the website: http://wingsandwheels.haveringmind.org.uk/

  7. Hi All, Just a brief note to keep you up to date on the developments around our 2nd First World War centenary event. 13-15th May 2016 in North Staffordshire. As we are counting down the days (worryingly less than 70 now!), the event website (www.ww1-event.org) is being updated regularly with news about the event. The event team will be pleased to make contact with anyone else who is interested to participate in the event with other vehicles and exhibits. Many thanks!

It is planned to operate demonstration First World War, Second World War and Cold War era trains during the weekend over the whole site. In addition the ever popular Trench will be open, staffed by members from the Gordon Highlanders living History group - who will enact various scenarios dueing the weekend. Passenger trains will be running and the adjacent heritage centre will be open - with the all important cafe serving up the local Staffordshire delicasy of Oatcakes.

  9. Dear All, Just a quick note to let you all know about a new venture unveiled last weekend – Tracks to the Trenches - the driver experience course. More details are currently available on the Tracks to the Trenches website – www.ww1-event.org This is a premium course (priced at similar level to others on the market) which is hoped to help us raise much needed funds towards our events and continued site developments. Tracks to the Trenches #2 (2016) is well into the planning phase - entry forms will shortly be uploaded to the event website. I have also attached the form here too. It would be great to see some of your historic vehicles alongside our own first world war equipment and the living history camp! Best wishes, TTTT2 vehicle entry form 2016.pdf
  10. The Tank Museum

    Event - May Half Term

    May Half Term Victory in Europe 23rd May 2015 - 31st May 2015 This May half-term, to coincide with the 70th Anniversary of VE-Day (Victory in Europe), the Tank Museum will be offering themed talks and activities related to the stories of the Allied victories across Europe. The Tank Museum will also be hosting a 1940's garden party where you can take part in creating flags, bunting and other crafts for the occasion. In addition to the stories, there will be an opportunity to climb in one of our Main Battle Tanks, try on our replica uniforms and take part in fun-filled family activity trails. Learn about the history of the tank and take a trip around the museum on one of our many free guided tours and activities offered by our dedicated Museum team. The Tank Museum’s newest exhibition Tank Factory is now open.

See our vehicles thunder into action and watch in awe as they demonstrate their firing capabilities. Complete with live expert commentary, you will discover how tanks work, their sounds and smells and what their uses are on the battlefield. Tracked Vehicle Rides will take place every day from 11.00am – 4.15pm, in our specially converted M548 tracked vehicle (£4pp). Converted in-house to hold 16 people at one time, our M548 is the perfect vehicle for the whole family to jump on board together! Our extended collection of vehicles will be open to view in the Vehicle Conservation Centre following the conclusion of our ‘Tanks In Action’ displays. It will be open 1.30pm – 4.30pm every day during the holidays for the opportunity to view the museum’s reserve collection from our viewing platform. Your admission ticket includes a FREE annual pass and entitles the holder to return to the museum free of charge as many times as you like during the year!

  11. It is with great pleasure that we can announce that the highly acclaimed “Tracks to the Trenches” (TTTT) is set to be developed and repeated in 2016 (TTTT 2) and 2018* (TTTT 3). In line with recently announced schedules, these events are now being planned for May in their respective years. 2016 (TTTT 2) – a 3 day event from 13-15th May 2016. A very similar format to the 2014 event (TTTT 1); with photo-charters being arranged in advance of the event weekend, evening photo-shoots during the event, access all areas passes, an emphasis on Schools/Group visit packages, plus much more! The 2017 event (13-14th May) is again planned to be a smaller event, specifically looking at Kerr Stuart locomotives and celebrating the Centenary of our flagship engine “Stanhope” – but it is still hoped to maintain a WW1 presence in the Trench area. 2018* (TTTT 3) – a 4 day World War 1 centenary event from 10th – 13th May 2018. Currently anticipated as really special year. Further details to be confirmed shortly, but hopefully developing on from TTTT1 and 2. Please keep the dates in your diaries! The organisers would like to invite any interested exhibitors or traders to contact us through the www.ww1-event.org website – we would be pleased to hear from you! Entry forms etc will start to be released shortly. * Subject to final confirmation
  12. Dear All, Hopefully the right place to post this! Just a short note to give an update on the Tracks to the Trenches event plans, as September is getting worryingly (for the organisers) closer! This First World War centenary event is heavliy focused on the battlefield logistics - in particular the narrow gauge light railways. We have made great strides in the development of both our site and the event. The event website (http://www.ww1-event.org) is being updated as regularly as we can. The latest news is that the on-line advance ticketing facility is now live! Over the last few months, and continuing during the summer is the development of a section of British Trench. This features the fire-trench (with step), communications trenches, machine gun pit and small first-aid post. Coupled to this trench, in the "service trench", is a trench tramway (or foreway) - which will keep it supplied and assist with medical "evacuations". Our main event field is complete (which will house the bulk of th eliving history area), and the larger "field railway" is rapidly taking shape. Over the next few months the site will start to see roads/pathways installed. The Titanic Brewery are supplying a large Real Ale bar which will be located our large marquee - the preview of which sounds like a mini beer-festival alone! We are hoping for a special edition beer this year - brewed to a 1914 recipe. We have also been securing various road vehicles - watch our website for some press-releases very soon! More are always welcome. All the latest entry forms (Trader, Living History, Vehicle/Exhibit) are now on the event website (www.ww1-event.org) in the entry forms section. We look forward to hearing from you all soon - please feel free to discuss anything with us. We are still open to ideas! Cheers,

  14. Hi, This summer I wanted to raise a bit of money for Help for Heroes. My plan was to bring my DUKW to a show I've been invited to and give kids rides in the back around the field. This unfortunately raises insurance proplems my brokers told me). 1). If a kid trips on the bangs their head ( if I'm showing the vehicle while it's static) my road insurance won't cover me (they said). 2). I can carry kids for free as the field temporarily comes under the Highways act (they said) for the duration of the show BUT if I charge people it is for 'Hire & reward' and the personal, social & domestic insurnce won't cover it. (I daren't even think about driving licence classes). I've rang around insurance companies and nobody would touch it. Does anyone have any ideas who would cover the vehicle? Thanks Don
  15. I am a volunteer member of the Moseley Railway Trust (www.mrt.org.uk), based near Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs. I am also one of the key members of the event organising team. We are in the early stages of starting to plan a significant event in 2014 to raise the profile of the often overlooked, tactical narrow gauge railways & the troops who constructed/operated them as used by all combatants during WW1. These WW1 light railways played a pivotal role in both the war & shaping industry in the post war years – bringing many (as we define them now) modern advances. More details about WW1 railways here: www.wdlr.org.uk Our museum has a large collection of ex-WW1 items, by bringing various other visiting items, we hope to be able create a unique interpretive event representing as many of the combatents (German, French, US, Dominion) as possible. Our site includes a significant field area & is adjacent to a country park, in addition to our railways. We are starting to investigate other complimentary visting items/attractions etc (including living history groups/vehicles) to add further depth & interest to the displays. I would be very interested to hear from anyone with ideas/offers of assistance/equipment who may be able to help or attend please. Photos from last year's Opening Gala attached for info - there was a small WW1 element within that event! I hope to hear from you soon. Best regards, Gareth Roberts
