Not long now!

It has been a while since we made any updates and with just over 2 months until the show, I thought it would be a good time to start to drive up some hype.

As always the organisers have been working tirelessly over the last few months planning the show and improving the field. We have now improved our water distribution at the site with new water pipe, taps, and standpoints. We will also be improving signage en route to the site with official AA event signs.

Applications have been open for a while now and are making good progress. If you are yet to make an application, please do so as soon as possible via the Exhibitors page.

We still have loads of space for reenactors and vehicles. Traders are approximately half full. If you have any problems, do not hesitate to get in Contact and we will try our best to assist you with this.

For anyone from the Isle of Wight wishing to exhibit, we have negotiated a 10% discount with WightLink ferries valid for the week before and after the show. And select times over the show weekend. Any exhibitors from the IOW will be sent this information AFTER they have made an application. We are not able to provide this to visitors.

In recent years, we have been trying to focus on special interest exhibits, and we are hoping on having a number of these exhibits at the show, to include a WWII 40mm anti-aircraft set display, a post-war T54 Tank. We may potentially have other special vehicle exhibits.

We are also looking at developing a display to commemorate 100 years of the end of WWI.

As with each year, we have requested a BBMF flyover, though admittedly we have not been particularly lucky with this.

Soon, we will be distributing our flyers, you might see a few about.

Overlord Show 2018: Update for Exhibitors

For any potential exhibitors who were planning on attending the show this year. No! We haven’t forgotten about you!

The application forms are not quite ready yet but we are hoping to make these available as soon as possible. Applications will be online (except traders) like before, however, you will now be able to check and modify these applications via the website.  All exhibitors from last year should expect emails notifying them when we have made them available. There have been a number of revisions, aiming to reduce the amount of information asked. There have also been a number of proposals for ways of improving the show layout and improving the use of space on the show field, so these are being planned by the respective subteams for vehicles, reenactors, and traders.

Be sure to note us down on your calendar and we thank you for your patience.
