MILITARY enthusiasts should head to the Solent Overlord Show to experience battles, explosions and tanks.

The annual military spectacular will feature more than 350 vehicles, 500 re-enactments and daily battles between opposing army groups with plenty of loud explosions and gunfire.

It begins on Friday and goes through to Monday at The Lawns, Mead End, Denmead.

The vehicles will range from Jeeps to tanks, from modern day all the way back to the First World War. All have been lovingly restored by enthusiasts.

There will be 100 trade stalls which collectors can browse as well as plenty to eat and drink.

On Sunday there will be a nostalgia day where re-enactors and visitors are encouraged to dress in 1940s style clothes.

Car parking is free and there is also some camping available.

Entry tickets can only be purchased at the gate and cost £8 for adults and £4 for children. Gates open from 9am to 5pm daily.
