We arrived early as advised on the website, access was easy. We had an amazing day watching all the free displays, the speed some of the tanks move at was amazing. Great selection of stalls and displays to look around. The reanctments were brilliant and loud! We stayed all day, and having arrived early also managed to leave the carpark easily . all in all a great free day out for the family.

So good this year that I drove down from Sheffield for both days. The displays were top notch as were the re-enactors plus it was good to see so many different vehicles. My only gripes are the use of bright orange Darfen fencing which blights photography and the exiting of the car parks was a nightmare, especially as it was so hot.

It was our first time, we were there from Friday night and we still didn't manage to do everything. Sad that it was too windy for the fly overs but the shows were excellent, especially Sundays battle. Also the dance was was very entertaining.

Love wondering around looking at the old vehicles and talking to the owners. It takes love and time to keep the vehicles in such high conditions they are. The highlight of the day for myself is watching the display of the CVRT'S, brings back memories for me of when I played with these for real when I was serving in the army. My family enjoy it all, especially my grandsons.

We have been going to wickstead at war for many years now and look forward to this event every year. There is something at Wickstead at war for everyone young and old. The displays are a must see and the stalls have the most amazing items for sale for any collector or even just for a sovenir at very reasoable prices. The staff at the event are all very friendly and helpful. I would recomend wickstead at war to anyone.

I enjoy Wicksteed at war so much. I have been for the past 5 years and every year there is always new and old stuff to enjoy. The reenactments, vehicles and the flyover are my favourite parts of the day. Always amazing information and facts come from the microphone in the arena. The staff are all wonderful helpful and bring it all succesfuly together with joy. Fun for everyone of all ages.

Have attended Wicksteed at war twice now a couple of years apart and was impressed at how much it had come on in such a short space of time. The fly pasts and re-enactments were amazing and the variety of vehicles on display and retailers to mooch round was impressive. Looking forward to the fly pasts hoping for another lovely day out with the family 🙂

I loved wicksteed at war 2016. We came with our 5 month old worried the tanks might scare him but he loved them like daddy does. We are looking forward to the tanks in 2017 as well as walking round the stalls my other half got a few pairs of trousers last year. Can't wait for another family day out to remember

ive attended war and peace show many times I attended wicksteed at war for the first time last year after moving to kettering I wasn't expecting such a great show and was very surprised and impressed I felt it held the atmosphere the authenticity that war and peace has being a vet of 8 years it was good to see hardware again and have the chance once again to be able to see great reenactments browse vintage stalls and be able to purchase surplus gear.i recommend this event to anyone a great time out and I hope it has the chance to grow and grow.great respect to the organisers and to the people who give up their time to share their passions and hobbies with all of us..thanks .
