Your dogs are welcome here!
Welcome to Baston in the Blitz 2019! Following our highly successful 2018 show, we are working hard to present an even better event for your enjoyment in 2019. With over 70 different living history display groups and more than 500 WW2 re-enactors, our next show will be bigger than ever! Our living history groups are some of the most authentic and historically accurate displays from around the UK. The re-enactors are extremely knowledgeable and are always very happy to answer any questions you might have, or to oblige with a photo opportunity.
We take great pride in staging realistic battle re-enactments for your entertainment, often featuring armoured vehicles and artillery as well as dozens of combat infantrymen. For those of you who missed our 2018 battle re-enactments, or who would simply like to re-live the experience, we have a selection of video clips available for viewing in our 2018 Photo Gallery - just click on the 2018 link on the left of this page.
In addition to the military aspects of Baston in the Blitz, we can also offer you an interesting shopping experience with more than 60 vintage trade stalls. Alternatively, why not relax in our grand marquee and enjoy some refreshment from our fully-licensed bar whilst being entertained by some of the country's finest vintage performers. The event is also fully catered with a variety of fast-food vendors.
Whilst we provide seating for over 250 people in and around the main marquee, our event is spread over about 15 acres, so we encourage visitors to bring their own lightweight folding chairs for their personal comfort around the site.
