It was a great show this year, completely defying the weather forecast. We even had our best ever Monday with footfall being comparable to Saturday and Sunday, which has helped offset the increased outlay. With this, we bring good news that the show will be going ahead next year from Saturday 25th to Monday 27th May 2019 at the same location – The Lawns, Denmead.
With this years success, it goes without saying we have a couple of people to thank for the hard work they have put in, in the months leading up to and over the weekend itself.
Firstly, all of the vehicle exhibitors, reenactors or living historians and traders, without which we wouldn’t really have a show. As always, your attendance is greatly appreciated.
Will Gibson and his team and the cadets of T.S. Active for their assistance with carpark marshalling, and first aid.
The T.S. Alacrity Marching Band for their music and continued support.
The Portsmouth Marine Cadet Drill Display team for their spectacular and entertaining performance.
The Garrison for bringing the WWI trench display to life and additionally demonstrating their 18 pounder howitzer.
Adrian Hill for choreographing the battle and organising the ammo, and Tex and his team for setting up the bigger bangs!
The Wessex Hill Runners for their 4×4 Course!
Those who assisted with marshalling duty, and site security in the evening!.
We’d also like to that all of the members and friends of Solent Overlord Executive Military Collectors Club who spent the last year planning the show, and the members who dedicated their time over the duration of the weekend to help with the many many jobs which needed attending to.
And anyone else I have forgotten.
As part of our quest for feedback, we would like to ask all members of the public to respond to our survey.
There are different surveys catered to each type of exhibitor. Traders wishing to give feedback need to do so directly to the Traders Coordinator.
