Soliders Shooting with clip ejecting from gun

I am glad to inform everyone that Solent Overlord Executive Military Collectors Club has had its first meeting to discuss the Overlord Show 2018.

We are still in the process of assigning duties to team members and prioritising jobs so anyone in the Solent area who is interested in helping should consider joining S.O.E. and the Show Team.

You may notice, we have a new website which has been rebuilt from the ground up, which should improve loading times and address some minor issues. Feel free to send in your comments and suggestions for the site. New features for exhibitors are planned which aim to make the application process even easier than last year. Applications will probably be looking to open some time around November/December time.

Food traders who are interested in catering can send interest via the contact form and it will be passed on for consideration.

We have a number of social media platforms now, so be sure to like, join and follow! Facebook Page. Facebook Group. Twitter.

There will be more information and promotional media released in the coming months, so stay tuned!

This year’s show promises to be the best ever but a few tips should help make your experience even more enjoyable!

Head for Junction 3 of the A3(M) and follow the yellow and black signs to the show

Parking is free!

Wear shoes suitable for a walk in the country

Plan plenty of time to enjoy the newly enlarged event – stalls open from 09:00, arena events from 10:30

Bring plenty of film / memory cards / batteries – there’s a great deal to photograph!

Be aware that there are three fields of exhibitors, traders and re-enactors!

Plan ahead – get your outfit together ready for “40’s Sunday”

Feel free to chat with vehicle owners and living history groups

Some arena events are both exciting and noisy, please warn small children and the nervous

Marshalls will warn you of heavy vehicles moving to and from the arena, please keep clear of the roadways if asked.

A wide range of food and drink stalls are planned for 2012

Whatever the weather there are plenty of trade stands to sell you sun hats or waterproofs, sandals or wellingtons, sunglasses or sou’westers …

Dogs on leads welcome, please clear up after them if necessary
Above all – enjoy yourselves and if there is anything you think we can do better for 2013 – let us know! :
