An popular annual military show is returning to Hampshire this weekend with war re-enactments and demonstrations set to wow the crowds.

The Overlord Show is taking place at The Lawns, Denmead between Saturday, May 25 and Monday, May 27. The three day annual event has been ongoing for several years with military enthusiasts flocking to the area to see around 300 military vehicles, 40 re-enactment groups and 70 trade stands.

It is known for its war re-enactment and vehicle parades with this year being no different. Visitors will be able to enjoy Napoleonic War and artillery firing demonstrations each morning, while a World War II vehicle parade will take place every afternoon. There is much more besides and a full timetable can be found on The Overlord Show website.
