Our wartime re-enactors transform the museum with the sights, sounds and smells of a wartime village ‘somewhere in England’ as D-Day approaches and the troops prepare for the impending invasion. Come along and experience 1940s life. Visit website for more details and advance booking.
With hundreds of military vehicles and reenactors from the Great War all the way through to modern day, accompanied by militaria traders from all over the country, it is a great day out for vehicle enthusiasts and history buffs alike. A great selection of food stands and our onsite beer tent mean you can easily spend the whole day to enjoy the hopefully sunny weather, arena events and professionally re-enacted battles.
The committee can also confirm that the 2022 show is expected to be held from Friday 3rd June to Sunday 5th June 2022. These dates coincide with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee central weekend, and as such we will be planning on hosting our own celebrations alongside our usual events. More information on this will be provided closer to the time.
Southwick Revival returns next year as the “Spirit of D-Day”!
Over the weekend of 11th/12th June 2022 the village of Southwick will once again play host to visitors from around the country and the world. Visits to the D-Day Map Room at Southwick House are once again the centrepiece, with the event promising the unique mix of entertainment for the young and not so young, for the serious re-enactor and military vehicle enthusiasts, for the 1940’s swing dancer and military history buffs. The unique backdrop of the village centre and the Church, little changed since the D-Day planning took place, has an atmosphere all of its own.
