War & Peace Revival At Hythe Former Racecourse is Venue For 1000’s of Vintage Vehicles.
This exciting five-day military and vintage festival will be packed full of education and entertainment bringing the Dunkirk Spirit to this historic corner of Kent. A special Schools’ Day programme will see schools from across Kent and beyond visiting for a unique event, giving the pupils unrivalled access to history at its most vivid and interactive, providing a truly memorable experience.
Thousands of military vehicles are expected to gather at the new 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.
Visitors to the new 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, but through a safe and vehicle-free zone. And if preferred, the main grandstand will give superb viewing opportunities from the terraces or even the Restaurant!
