Whether you’ve been to War and Peace before or this will be your first time, this section is for you to find out all you need to know about visiting The War and Peace Revival at The Hop Farm.
Discover the Victory Marquee with all its elegance bringing the 1940s to life with the best in entertainment from the mid-20th Century, or explore the Market Place with its host of world class dealers in fashion, homeware and civilian memorabilia from that period.
Thousands of military vehicles will be on display. 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 – see the British living in trenches, GIs in Vietnam, Russians relaxing with an accordion after a hard day in battle, or Germans plotting their next moves! At all times our re-enactors will adhere to a strict moral code in their displays.
Living history groups, dioramas and individual displays depicting civilian life from 1930 to 1960 will be given a dedicated area to show what life was like away from the barracks and the battlefield. Home Front re-enactors and demonstrators will show the hardships endured by both men and women left behind. Civilian vehicles, peace-time activities and re-enactors will all combine to create a vision of the social backdrop against which several 20th Century wars were fought.
See an amazing array of Classic Cars.
