Been going here for the last seven years. Always a good day out especially if the weather is good. Plenty to do and see. And u can have a nice picnic whilst watching the arieal display. Only downside is the traffic in and out but there is nothing more they can do to help this.

We attended in 2016 for the first time and found the event terribly unorganized. We felt there was too much traffic in the show ground and at times if felt really unsafe!! The stalls sold what can only be called 'junk' and second hand rubbish and we felt the displays on offer and the show was really not worth the... More

This is a participant's perspective and we're as much spectators at the show as everyone else. It was an excellent show in previous years but sadly others have caught up with the atmosphere that was unique to Victory and it's slipped back a little bit, with more hastle and difficulty surrounding the organisation. There are still great groups attending and... More

Another brilliant year at The Victory Show. With so many re enactors to talk to they show pure enthusiasm for what they do. Great settings in the woods and a superb land battle in the afternoon. Our friends were on their first visit and were impressed by the number of people taking part. Yes it cost £18 but I rate... More

The mock battle in the afternoon was good. Great displays of tanks and other MVs. Re-enactors camps were really good. A lot of hard work went into them.There were many stalls selling just about EVERYTHING. Too many CAA flight restrictions ruined the aviation side of the show 2016. Not much happened at all this year. It's a shame. Tickets for... More

Noisy, vibrant, fun, historical and a great weekend. This was my first time at the Victory show. It has everything you need in a re-enactment weekend, from bars to burger vans. A camp site, 100 acres of vehicles, displays, vendors and much much more. You are of course at the mercy of the elements and this year the flying displays... More

We have witnessed the air show from outside the grounds before & it looked really good. We payed our £18 each to get in & it was basically a market/ boot sale selling military memorabilia, clothes, shoes etc. The staged battle which lasted around half an hour was very good & you could go on a tank ride. The air... More

There are not many things that I would give 5 stars to but The Victory Show is one of them. It's not just a big re-enactment and vast array of stalls and vehicles but also has a 'community' feel about it. Yes the land owner is making an awful lot of money but really it is a group of militaria... More
