Echoes Of History
Don't miss the amazing Essex HMVA: Echoes of History show at Whitehouse Farm Living Memorial Gardens, Rettendon. The Gardens contain memorials dedicated to servicemen who have served or still serving. We have military vehicles across all eras - from bikes to massive trucks that make the tanks look small! Tanks and armoured vehicles will be taking part in the awesome vehicle parade. In addition to an amazing turn out of history display groups depicting life from many periods and nationalities. Historical re-enactors go to enormous lengths to represent the subjects they portray as accurately and authentically as possible and are always happy to answer questions or demonstrate equipment so don't be afraid to ask! We provide visitors with a rare opportunity to see how people of different nationalities and time periods lived and to get close to the weapons, equipment and atmosphere of the time. STOP PRESS! Spitfire fly past on Sunday!!!
Arena activities are taking place throughout the day, where you can see these historic vehicles in motion, allowing you to get close to a military convoy, tanks and armoured vehicles as well as see and hear them roaring around the arena and learn a little about their history. As always, there will be our re-enactment displays and demonstrations - and don’t forget to join in the kids marching drill. For many the highlight is the multi period battle where reenactors from different periods and outfits conduct a light hearted “battle” with everything from frying pans to water pistols!!
There's so much more for the kids to get involved in, as well as all the stuff to watch, see and explore, there's also the fair, Jive dancing, live music, family and collectors' stalls and many other activities. What better way is there for the younger generation to learn about our history than to hear about it from those who made it our wonderful veterans who will also be in attendance.
Show time is 10am to 5pm on both days
Tickets for 2022 are priced at £15 for adults and children go FREE! for either Saturday or Sunday
