    I do really hope that this comes off. Although I appreciate the efforts of the organizers, for me the Folkestone site just had absolutely zero 'atmosphere' and TBH I was seriously considering giving up on it completely in 2017....

    I shall be there and this will be my 17th trip.

    I agree that the Westhanger location was pretty rubbish having been there every year since it moved from Beltring I can say it was showing no signs of improvement but was getting worse.

    As for why the changes have happened; as far as I understand it, and I say this without prejudice as it is only third party scuttlebutt; the original move was not as widely circulated because the Hop Farm was in commercial difficulty (clearly!) but rather it was due to disagreement between the organiser (now gone) and the Hop Farm. I have heard the cause of the disagreement but will not repeat it in writing lest I be considered libellous if it is not true.

    The show could not remain at Westernhanger (thankfully) because the site is due to be developed I understand.

    The return to Beltring (yippee!) comes about by the new organisers sorting out the original issues with the Hop Farm.

    Whatever the truth or detail of it I applaud this and can't wait to get back to the biggest show of the type in the world.

    For those who don't know the show is divided up into; very large collectors market, static and re-enactor displays, arena displays with running vehicles and demonstration "battles" plus restored military vehicles of all periods and types. In previous years there have been as many as 4000 restored vehicles on display. For those staying on site there is entertainment with bars and period music etc. There is really nothing to top this.

    Hopefully everything that has been "bleeding" away these last few years will come flooding back.

    Hope to see some members there.

    Regards

    Mark
