Welcome to the War and Peace Revival
16 to 20 July 2014
until the next show
The War and Peace Revival returns to Folkestone Racecourse this year from 16-20 July 2014. Join us as we mark the centenary of the start of WW1, the 75th anniversary of the start of WW2 and the 70th anniversaries of both D-Day and Arnhem. Learn about the Great War among the trenches and view the beautifully preserved uniforms and personal items.
Featuring military and civilian re-enactors, living history, battle re-enactments and arena events, military vehicles, vintage entertainment, book signings, shopping, funfair and models it’s a great family day out! The Vintage Village features civilian displays from the 1930s to the 1960s including Home Front, Land Army (with real cows!) classic cars, vintage fashion features and makeovers and much more - something for everyone whether you're into the military side or just vintage living. Live music day and night gives a real festival feel to the world’s biggest military vehicle event. Camping available with exclusive evening entertainment so you won’t miss out on a moment!
See hundreds of WW2 veterans and listen to their incredible tales of when they were "just doing their job".
Spend time wandering through the Vintage Market Place, packed full of stalls selling genuine vintage or retro clothes, homewares and memorabilia. Enjoy afternoon tea in the Spitfire tea room or wander the Home Front displays and demonstrations. See the beautiful classic cars and support vehicles, then drop into the Jazz Bar for a bit of swing!
Take part in dance lessons in the Vintage Marquee then try out your moves in the evening in the vintage clothes you find in the trade stalls. Not sure where to start? Then take inspiration at our daily fashion events and hair and beauty demonstrations. In the Victory Marquee, enjoy an exciting programme of entertainment, with singers, entertainers, big bands and dancers, book signing and lots more! Meet the original cast of Allo Allo and listen to a special performance by the famed Military Wives Choir.
On Friday 18 and Saturday 19 July we have ticketed evening events; Friday sees the return of the fabulous Jive Aces, while Saturday welcomes the John Miller Orchestra in a dine and dance spectacular! Tickets for these two events can be booked through: 01304 813337 or 813945!
Travel is very simple with Folkestone Racecourse being just a couple of minutes off J11 of the M20 and the mainline Westenhanger station immediately next door with direct access from London stations. The High Speed train will stop just for War and Peace on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 July, making journeys even quicker! For those travelling from the continent, the Channel Tunnel terminus 5 minutes away and Dover ferry port about 15-minute drive.
