The War and Peace Revival 2019

Win family tickets to The War and Peace Revival 2019.

A five-day military and vintage festival (23rd-27th July) at The Hop Farm, Paddock Wood, will be packed full of education and entertainment bringing the Dunkirk Spirit to this historic corner of Kent.

Visitors to The War and Peace Revival will be able to catch up with friends while watching the incredible action-packed battle re-enactments – not just a group of people running around playing soldiers but a full-scale choreographed battle to give you a taste of the action at the Front!

Get right up close to the action, but through a safe and vehicle-free zone. Thousands of military vehicles are expected to gather at the new venue from around the world representing the armies of the 20th century.

Look out for tanks, artillery, armoured and amphibious vehicles, cars, Jeeps, bicycles and motorbikes, emergency and commercial vehicles – and lots more.

Living History scenes will provide a unique picture of life in conflict with depictions from WW1 to the present.


Trade stalls will give collectors and shoppers the opportunity to browse through marquees packed full of treasures including militaria, antiquities, vehicle parts, books, memorabilia, clothing and uniforms and all manner of essential finds for the discerning enthusiast – everything from a shirt button to a tank!

For the modellers, an extensive display of some top class models, bringing enthusiasts from around the world – and the craftsmen are always willing to share their knowledge and experience. The War and Peace Revival is a unique opportunity to see the full-sized versions of their models just by walking outside!

If you want a little more glamour in their lives and perhaps a welcome break from the ‘sea of green’, both people and vehicles, then head for the Vintage Village by the Victory Marquee (previously the V Marquee).  Here you’ll find an exciting focus to the ‘Peace’ element of the Show’s title.  Enjoy shopping for that complete look in their dedicated vintage market place.

Once you have found your perfect outfit for the evening you can also book to have a vintage hairstyle to match from one of the hairdressers in the area so you will look and feel like a million dollars!  There is also a 1940’s barber too.

The Vintage Village also hosts top-class dealers in vintage home ware and civilian memorabilia from around the world.  

After all that shopping, head to the Victory Marquee for free day-time vintage-themed entertainment, mainly from the 1940’s and 1950’s, which you can enjoy with a meal or a cream tea. You can even learn how to Jive from the simple lessons offered by professional dancers to get you in the mood for the big night ahead… will it be cocktails in the Gentleman’s Marquee first before returning to the Victory Marquee for a romantic dinner dance to a full Swing Big Band or Rockin’ out at the Spitfire Bar? The choice is yours!



23rd - 27th July 2019, 9am - 6pm.
