Wicksteed’s war weekend

A leisure park will be turned into a battlefield as scores of tanks, jeeps, and planes are rolled out for a military extravaganza.

Battle will commence for Wicksteed at War this weekend at the Kettering park, which takes place on Saturday, June 9, and Sunday, June 10.

The event will boast more than 60 vintage military vehicles, a fly-by from a wartime Dakota aircraft on Saturday, as well as World War Two re-enactments.

Organiser Tim Hawkes said: “We started the show last year as part of Wicksteed’s 90th anniversary celebrations and it was such a success we’ve been asked to repeat it.”

There will be stalls, a fire engine display and survival tips from ex Royal Marine specialists.

The event starts at 10am on both days, and entry is £3, with £1 off for people dressed in 40s style clothing.
