With one week to go, this year’s TANKFEST, presented by World of Tanks, is close to selling out, with only advance Friday tickets left!
Over 24,000 visitors are expected to see the world’s biggest display of running military vehicles in a three-day tank spectacular held 23-25 June.
TANKFEST showcases an unparalleled line-up of historic and modern running armour, from the Museum’s collection to the British Army who are putting on a display of the vehicles that are used on operations today.
The guest armour will include a rare German Nashorn and a Centaur, who will both make their UK debuts at TANKFEST.
Visitors will be able to see iconic warbirds the Lancaster, Spitfire, and Hurricane and the Red Arrows who will be taking part in a flypast over the arena.
“We have a jam-packed programme for this year’s TANKFEST. As well as the world-class tank displays, visitors can explore living history encampments, a World of Tanks gaming zone, lectures from experts, a variety of traders and caterers, and a flypast courtesy of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight,” said The Tank Museum’s Visitor Experience Manager Rosanna Dean.
Visitors will have the opportunity to browse the Museum’s ten powerful, interactive exhibitions, including the brand new ‘Tanks for the Memories’, which presents the tank as a cultural icon through the mediums of TV, media, models, games and film.
“At TANKFEST we are proud to be able to display what is the greatest display of historic moving armour in the world,” said Tank Museum Curator David Willey. “We are fortunate to be able to bring in some ‘guest stars’ to treat the audience and keep the show fresh.”
Tickets are still available for the Friday of TANKFEST.
