  • TANKFEST 2023
  • TANKFEST 2023

Tons of tank action!

TANKFEST 2023 features three full days of arena displays – with the same programme running each day from Friday to Sunday for the first time. As before the pandemic, visitors will have the freedom to move around the site as they please, enjoying live tank displays, talks, demonstrations and living history before exploring the vast halls of the museum.

With so much to see and do – including a new Museum exhibition for 2023, a two or three-day day ticket is highly recommended!

In the Arena:

TANKFEST offers a globally unique spectacle of historic tanks in action. Refreshed for 2023, arena displays will tell the story of the tank in parallel with the development of anti-tank warfare since its birth to the present day. Expect explosive demonstrations of rare historic armour with displays of the weapons and vehicles used to defeat them in this new show curated by David Willey.
