Wartime vehicles, Land Rovers, wheeled armour, and Royal British Legion motorbike riders were just some of the things on display at the annual event.

One of the organisers, Sally Baker, said the show went really well.

“This year’s pyrotechnics were bigger and better than ever and people really enjoyed the show,” she said.

“We keep adding new things in and changing the way we do things to keep it fresh and interesting for visitors. It was a shame the weather wasn’t on our side, it would have been much easier if it had been a dry weekend but unfortunately we can’t do anything about that.

“It all went really well though, and even though it’s very hard work, it’s all worth it and people really enjoyed themselves.”

Around 6,000 people attended the event.

Sally said there were more military vehicles and caravans involved than ever before.

“We had a good turnout and everything went as planned,” she said.

“I would have liked to see 10,000 people come through the gates but the weather got in the way of that.

“We still have 40 tanks waiting to be sorted out but the muddy field means they are impossible to move.”

Sally added: “I would like to thank everyone who helped to make the show a success, we couldn’t do it without our helpers and friends.”
