Event Description

An AMAZING event plus great exhibition. Join Spirit of Remembrance at the Belgium Tourist Board stand

DROP BY OUR STAND & ENTER THE GREAT COMPETITION

Back for a fourth year, the unforgettable and breathtaking British Military Tournament returns in 2013 to celebrate ‘British Legends’ in a new and exciting show, which is set to have audiences perched on the very edge of their seats.

Commentated by leading British actor, Anthony Andrews, this year’s Tournament will present dramatic re-enactments, nail biting high speed chases, daring stunts, and for the first year, audiences will get a glimpse into the battlefields of the future using state of the art technology.

The British Military Tournament is a great day out for all the family. Come along early and enjoy our fantastic exhibition area, meet serving sailors, soldiers and airmen and marvel at the latest military kit including an Apache Helicopter, a Jackal AFV and a replica Chinook. Plus also see an Enigma machine from Bletchley Park and take part in a live code breaking that will be linked back to a WW2 decoding machine.  See also the Bloodhound Supersonic Car, and a Spitfire.

Over the last three years, the Tournament has raised in excess of £450,000 for the three individual service charities of Britain’s armed forces. By purchasing tickets you are helping us to support every generation of our military family.
