UK – The Overlord Show

The The Overlord Show is a military history event held in Hampshire each year. Operating since the 1970s in one form or another the show is well established and continues to grow. Billed as the “south coasts premier military spectacular” you will find over 300 military and classic vehicles, 70+ traders selling military items and 40+ living history / reenactor groups.

Throughout the day there will be parades of vehicles from all periods of military history. Currently there are Battle of Britain memorial flight flyovers scheduled for the Friday and Sunday of the show. Of course, there will also be a battle reenactment in the afternoon to help round off the day. Throughout the reenactor fields you will also find interesting demonstrations and displays done by the passionate groups. A WW2 soviet sniper display is currently top of our list to see!

Ticket prices vary but it is worth mentioning that they do offer a family ticket. This is for 2 adults and up to 4 children (5-15 years). This would vastly reduce the cost of a family day out!
