WAR AND PEACE RE­VIVAL, THE HOP FARM, PAD­DOCK WOOD, JULY 24 - 28

This five-day mil­i­tary and vin­tage fes­ti­val at The Hop Farm, near Pad­dock Wood, will be packed full of ed­u­ca­tion and en­ter­tain­ment, bring­ing the Dunkirk Spirit to this his­toric cor­ner of Kent.

Vis­i­tors to The War and Peace Re­vival will be able to catch up with friends while watch­ing the in­cred­i­ble ac­tion-packed bat­tle re-en­act­ments – not just a group of peo­ple run­ning around play­ing soldiers but a full-scale chore­ographed bat­tle to give you a taste of the ac­tion at the front!

Get right up close to the ac­tion through a safe and ve­hi­cle-free zone. Thou­sands of mil­i­tary ve­hi­cles are ex­pected to gather at the venue from around the world, rep­re­sent­ing the armies of the 20th cen­tury.

Look out for tanks, ar­tillery, ar­moured and am­phibi­ous ve­hi­cles, cars, Jeeps, bi­cy­cles and mo­tor­bikes, emer­gency and com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles – and lots more. Liv­ing His­tory scenes will pro­vide a unique pic­ture of life in con­flict with de­pic­tions from WW1 to the present – see the Bri­tish liv­ing in trenches, GIS in Viet­nam, Rus­sians re­lax­ing with an ac­cor­dion af­ter a hard day in bat­tle, or Ger­mans plot­ting their next moves! At all times our re-en­ac­tors will ad­here to a strict mo­ral code in their dis­plays.

Trade stalls will give col­lec­tors and shop­pers the op­por­tu­nity to browse through mar­quees packed full of trea­sures in­clud­ing mil­i­taria, an­tiq­ui­ties, ve­hi­cle parts, books, mem­o­ra­bilia, cloth­ing and uni­forms and all man­ner of es­sen­tial finds for the dis­cern­ing en­thu­si­ast – ev­ery­thing from a shirt but­ton to a tank!

For the mod­ellers, an ex­ten­sive dis­play of some top-class mod­els will be on dis­play, bring­ing en­thu­si­asts from around the world – and the cre­ators are al­ways will­ing to share their knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence. For mod­ellers, the event is a unique op­por­tu­nity to see the full-sized ver­sions of their mod­els just by walk­ing out­side!

Take a re­lax­ing stroll around the WW2 vil­lage com­plete with wartime shops, bar­bers, vil­lage hall, a steam train rides and even a pub!’’ For yy­our chance to win, sim­plypy an­swer the fol­low­ingg qques­tion:
