Mark IV Replica

Visitors to the British Motor Museum in Warwickshire this September will get to experience a World War One themed event.

The event, the British Military Weekend will take place between 30th September and 1st October.

During the event the museum will be transformed into wartime Britain, displaying a collection of military vehicles.

British Military Weekend

This year the British Motor Museum is expanding the event to all things ‘British Military’ and offering even more for visitors of all ages. 

Outside the museum, attractions will include an impressive collection of British Military vehicles including the replica Mark IV Tank used in the movie ‘War Horse’, on loan from The Tank Museum. 

The Royal Warwickshire Regiment 1914 - 1918 Living History Group will be performing dynamic displays and period re-enactments, whilst in sharp contrast, a modern day bomb disposal team will be demonstrating their Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Robot.

Inside the museum, visitors can meet a British ‘Tommy’ in the trenches to learn about the conditions endured by soldiers on the front lines in World War One and drop into the Field Hospital to discover how injuries sustained in battle led to the discovery of new medical techniques and the foundations of plastic surgery.

They can also explore ‘B2737 - the Battle Bus’, on loan from the London Transport Museum. 

There is even the chance to camp in the museum grounds and make a full weekend of it.
