Militaria Shows This Weekend 16/04/23

As always, this weekend we bring you a nice selection of militaria collectors shows across the world. We are firm believers that there is no better place for collectors and enthusiasts than at militaria fairs and that is why we do our weekly posts. When you head down to your local militaria show you can handle items, speak to others and learn. When a new collectors asks us how we know so much about our respective subjects, the answer is always “by handing the real thing” and what better place than a militaria show!

So, down to it. This weekend there isn’t a huge list of shows on our calendar, but a few none the less.

USA – Super Militaria Show

Not too often you can say this, The Super Militaria Show is organised by Martin Super and has fair dates booked in until 2032! That is incredible planning.

A member of the OMVS, Martin decided to start the Super Militaria Show having visited many other military shows across the US and picked up good and bad idea. His vision, to put all the good ideas to the test! As a collector himself, the aim has been to create a show built around what a dealer and collector would like out of a show. Priding himself on not allowing “flea market” items into the show, he pledges to put as many original items as possible out on sale at each April event.

People often ask, what can I expect to find at a militaria show? Well here is a look at what The Militaria Shop found at a show in the UK.

UK – Chatham Militaria Fair

Chatham Militaria Fair is a UK show recurring on the second Sunday of every month at Chatham Historic Dockyards, this weekend is one of those rare exceptions. Due to last weekend being easter Sunday, Chatham was rescheduled for this Sunday.

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.

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!

UK – The Leeds Arms & Militaria Fair

The Leeds Arms & Militaria Fair is held regularly at the Pudsey Civic Hall just off the main road between Leeds and the Bradford rind road.

Only 2.5 miles from the centre of Leeds and opposite the new Pudsey railway station, so the fair has great access. Lots of free parking plus all day refreshments and a licensed bar.

A long standing staple show for northern dealers, you will always fine a wide selection of interesting items available. Free valuations are never a problem at all from these passionate sellers and as such, the public are encouraged to bring along any item they would like valuing or want to sell.

Operated by Northern Arms Fairs who were established in 1978 with shows currently operating from Leeds, Newark, Liverpool, Preston and Scotch Corner.

At Militaria Today we have compiled the world’s most extensive militaria fairs and events list. We strive to be as accurate as we can. However, all events are subject to change, so we recommend checking with the event organisers before travelling, in case of any last-minute changes. We cover a worldwide market, so it can be hard to keep up with last-minute amendments.

Know of a show that’s not on our list?

Our fairs list is completely free for all users and show organisers! So if you know of a militaria fair, show, military yard/boot sale, reenactment or other event that is not on our list, just get in touch and we will happily add it to our list and promote the event on our social media. Please send any submissions via our contact us page. We want to build the most complete worldwide list available.
