The War and Peace Revival holds the distinction of being the biggest military vehicle show in the entire world and that’s including the additions of militaria collectors fair as well as living history re-enactments from the First World War alongside other conflict. The military show and festival, previously known as the War and Peace Show, helps history come alive through its deep dive into life during war time and live demonstrations of military vehicles. The showgrounds are taken over by tanks, armoured personnel carriers, armoured cars, amphibious vehicles, motorcycles, as well as light, medium and heavy military wheeled vehicles. The biggest contributions come from the two most significant collections, The Wheatcroft Collection and the Jon Phillips Armor Collection. Aside from exhibits and trade stalls, visitors can fully immerse themselves into historical events through different re-enactors that mark key moments of 20th century military history. 


The War and Peace Revival is an annual event, which is held at the height of summer. Editions are staged in late July through to early August on some occasions and last for five days in total.
