The World’s best display of moving armour returns to The Tank Museum!

Experience the best display of historic moving armour in the world at The Tank Museum – bringing the story of tanks, tank crew and soldiers to life...

Historic vehicle displays will include vehicles making their show debuts, with a number of old favourites returning to the arena.

TANKFEST 2013 examines the adversarial nature of tank warfare, pitting one nations fighting armour against that of another. Our arena displays will examine the great armoured confrontations of the last century with our unique collection of working tanks. You’ll discover the strengths and weaknesses of the armour fielded by the protagonists of conflicts since World War One and find out why the tank has been integral to ultimate victory on the battlefield.

The show finale, the mock battle, will present a scenario dreaded by millions in the post war years… What if the cold war turned hot? For the first time, we will try to show how NATO would try and hold a Soviet force on the Plains of Germany with the potent threat of a nuclear strike.

Please note that Tankfest 2013 is a special event, and requires a Tankfest 2013 ticket for admission. Annual passes may not be used for this event.

*Terms & Conditions apply as follows:
The membership does not entitle the holder to free admission on special event days, such as TANKFEST. The Museum may specify a total of 5 special event days in that 365-day period on which this annual ticket will be exempt. These dates can be found on this website but if you are unsure we recommend that you call ahead of your visit. The event details are updated regularly on our website, so please check the relevant web page or phone the Museum prior to your visit. Tank Action Displays are not counted a special event day. The individual paying the admission fee will be registered as the member, and will be required to be present and to provide proof of identity and a signature for return visits. If you require individual membership for members of your party, you should consider paying separately to enable you to gain return visits independently.
