Living History in all its Glory
Stow Maries At War
On Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd July, Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome will host its first ever dedicated living-history event focussing on the Great War and the British Armed Forces in all its glory.
The historic Aerodrome will be bustling with figures from the bygone age of the site’s heyday. Uniforms, weaponry, equipment and training will all be on show as well as the everyday tasks of the Great War soldier and airmen. There will be authentic demonstrations, a marching band as well as an exhibition by award winning First World War aviation artist, Graham Turner.
The Great War, YouTube channel will also be on site, filming and interviewing. Other attractions will include The Great War Society, 10th Essex Regiment and The Royal Navy Bluejacket living history groups.
We will be welcoming some fantastic air displays, weather permitting, plus Flight Line Tours, a BBQ, Bar and Ice Creams.
Chief Executive of Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome, Ian Flint said: “We are delighted to be able to host such an exciting event. Whilst other periods are well represented over the country, an event dedicated solely to the Great War is seldom, if ever seen. The opportunity to attend such an event has attracted the cream of historical interpretation on a national level. Stow Maries At War is set to be an amazing occasion for all ages, we can’t wait!”
