Militaria Shows This Weekend 9/12/22

We can only apologise for the delay in posting this post. Sadly some of the members of our small team have been in hospital this past week unexpectedly. But hopefully it is still in time for you to have a browse at what militaria shows are on this weekend (9/12/22). As always, please do get out there and support your local fair and do it as safely as possible with all the new winter bugs and illnesses going around!

With only 2 weekends left before Christmas, this weekend’s and next weekend’s militaria shows are excellent last-minute opportunities to pick up some unique presents for the militaria enthusiast or reenactor in your life. So without further delay, here are the militaria shows that are happening this weekend (9/12/22) around the world.

UK – Chatham Militaria Fair

Chatham Militaria Fair is a UK show recurring on the second Sunday of every month at Chatham Historic Dockyards (with some occasional exceptions). The event is held on Slip No.5 of the historic dockyard at Chatham and is currently the only undercover monthly fair solely for militaria sale in the UK. There’s 36.000 square feet of space for dealers, meaning the show often brings a large selection. Thanks to being under cover, the show is never cancelled due to wind or rain. However, with it being on the docks, it does get cold so definitely pack a warm coat!

Traders can enter from 5:30am and the public from 7am with the show closing at 2pm.

For traders this is a great show, no need to book a table. Just show up in your vehicle between 5:30 and 7am, pay £60 as you enter and off you go!
