The TANKFEST 2021 Premium Experience will give participants a chance to go behind the scenes and discover what it takes to recover, own and rebuild a historic tank.
The Premium Experience is limited to 60 participants per session and is available each day from Friday 17 to Monday 20 September.
Those who book their Premium Experience on the Friday will get a free standard admission ticket for Saturday to enjoy the arena display, and those who book for Monday will get a free standard admission for Sunday (as the main arena displays only take place on Saturday and Sunday).
This experience is recommended for over 18s, under 18s must be supervised by an adult at all times.

Hosted in The Tank Museum Workshop, participants will receive presentations from two tank collectors who have done just that – and get an insight into the motivations and challenges faced by those that can’t resist big projects. Their vehicles will be seen in the arena displays too.
Guests will also hear from a well-known Tank Museum figure on the rich history of Bovington and the development of The Tank Museum before enjoying the main event – the arena display.
For 2021, The Tank Museum is dramatically revamping the arena display to make it more intense, concentrated and action-packed.
Book-ended by professionally curated mock-battle vignettes, we’re adding more drama and spectacle alongside the popular cavalcade of historic and modern armoured fighting vehicles.
Please Note: Due to social distancing requirements it is likely that all viewing will be standing (with the exception of disabled / mobility impaired ).
A hearty, locally sourced lunch and refreshments are all included, and there will be time to explore the site and the Museum – with an exclusive time slot for Premium Ticket holders to explore the tank park to see the guest armour close up, armed with a complimentary show guide.
