WWII display to recall Oulton Park’s military history this weekend

Friday, August 26, 2016

A large WWII military camp and vehicle display will recall another era of the Cheshire venue's history this Bank Holiday weekend (28/29 August).

Oulton Park played a major role during the six-year conflict as an army staging camp. General Patton was famously stationed at the venue in the run-up to the D-Day operation that signalled the closing stages of the war.

The WWII display will feature tanks, field guns,  jeeps and much more, with both German and Allied re-enactors taking part. Amongst the machinery will be a Half Track, Opel Blitz truck, Field and Flak guns, US Greyhound tank, Dodge weapons truck and Ambulance, Medic Jeep and civilian cars from the period.

There will also be a Spitfire on display, and the iconic hero of the Battle of Britain is always a popular sight with its distinctive elliptical wings. Visitors will be able to get a closer look at this legendary machine on Sunday and Monday.

Completing the period feel will be music from The Belladonna Brigade, a nostalgic close harmony trio, dedicated to recreating the sound of the era. Professionally trained at The Royal Academy of Music, the trio take the most popular hits of the Swing and Boogie-Woogie era and create original and stunning three-part harmonies that have swooned audiences worldwide.

The display and music will be located opposite Chequers Restaurant on Sunday and Monday, adding a further dimension to this weekend's nostalgic proceedings.

Tickets for the Oulton Park Gold Cup are available on the gate for £5 on Saturday, and £24 each for Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday, with free admission for under-13s. For more information call 0843 453 9000 or visit www.oultonparkgoldcup.co.uk
