WAR ANDPEACE RACES TO HELLFIRE CORNER!

Rex Cadman is delighted to announce the launch of his brand new show; The War and Peace Revival, which willbe held at RAF Westenhanger, Folkestone Racecourse near Hythe, Kent on 17-21July 2013. Of this exciting new venture, Rex said: “after celebrating the 30th anniversary of the War and Peace Show, we thought it was time to draw a line under the event and move forwards with a new event in a new venue, creating something exciting and fresh. My years of experience with The War and Peace Show have given me the understanding of what does and doesn’t work, so the new show will be even better! ”Rex is best known for his former show, The War and Peace Show, which was at The Hop Farm in Kent for 25 years and celebrated its 30th anniversary this year. Rex organised this with his team from 1989, taking it from a small club show started by the Invicta Military Vehicle Preservation Society (IMPS) with just 100 vehicles in 1982, to the world’s biggest military vehicle event. The Racecourse location was chosen due to its unique relevancy to the new military and vintage event. Right in the heart of Hellfire Corner, so named due to the battering it received during the Battle of Britain in 1940, the area is steeped in military history. The Racecourse itself was used as partof Operation Fortitude (South) during WW2 - the great deception designed to fool the Germans into believing the D-Day landings would be in Calais, not Normandy. Inflatable aircraft were setup along the racecourse to make it look like an active airfield and in 1944 660 Squadron used the racecourse to practice operations with local army units, prior to leaving for France three months later. President of the IMPS, James Baxter, said: “This new show, in a fantastic location, is avery exciting development. The permanent facilities, such as bars, restaurants, etc provided at the racecourse will greatly enhance the experience of the show, for both visitors and exhibitors alike. Rex Cadman is moving military history events to a new level which cannot be matched anywhere else, and IMPS is delighted to support this new venture. ”Visitors to the new show will be able to see many of the expected attractions including living history, military vehicles, meeting WW2 and other veterans, vintage civilian entertainment, trade stands, celebrities, battle re-enactments and military models. The first War and Peace Revival will be held at Folkestone Racecourse near Hythe, Kent CT21 4HX (justoff the M20 Junction 11) from 17-21 July 2013. See www.thewarandpeacerevival.co.uk
