Temple at War Military and Vintage Show

Cressing Temple

Back To Events Soldier with trees in background

Temple at War might be one of the newest Military Shows in Britain but it certainly packs a heavy weight punch when it comes to first class performances. In its third year, Temple at War is back for 2017 returning Cressing Temple Barns. This outstanding Military Show will be hosting authentic Living History Groups, spectacular military vehicles, atmospheric 1940s entertainment and the opportunity to browse a wide range of collectors, traders and vendor stalls from all over the UK.

As a great day out for all the family, you can step back in time and experience the past 100 years of military history. No other military show has the unique signature attractions that have been built by the show in the past years and there is even more to come in 2017! Experience the sharp shooting of the Temple at War Sniper and walk amongst the atmospheric German Woodland Encampment.

Encounter spontaneous and dramatic enactments by characters that you can interact with. Drill with a Company of WW1 Soldiers, defuse a WW2 Training Bomb and come into contact with actual historic events. Watch the tense and explosive battles throughout the weekend incorporating pyrotechnic effects and learn what life was like on the home front as rationing made life hard for the loved ones left behind. From small artefacts to tank carriers, Temple at War is not to be missed. Bag that bargain at our Traders Alley and indoor Vintage and Military shopping experience and enjoy fantastic food from our hot and cold food stands.

Take a picnic in the main arena whilst taking in a stage show or a cool drink and walk in the walled garden with characters of a bygone era. Temple at War caters for everyone with an interest in history and is a fantastic opportunity for everyone of all ages to share their enthusiasm, knowledge and experience in a family friendly and safe environment. Please note that only guide dogs are permitted within the show ground.
