Temple at War

Temple at War 2020!

Temple at War is thrilled to be opening the Military re-enactment season once again in 2020 as we return for our sixth year to the fantastic setting of Cressing Temple Barns on 16-17 May. Since opening its doors in 2015, Temple at War has rapidly gained an outstanding reputation for the scale and high quality re-enactment on display which is now known throughout Europe as one of the best Military events to attend.

For the 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe Day, the Essex Event will showcase the best and largest Annual Living History gathering in the UK. Over 900 authentic re-enactors will gather over the May weekend, portraying characters, scenes and displays from WW1 to present day which will be the most outstandingly brilliant interactive experience that you, your family and your friends will encounter. A lifetime event that you will want to return to every year.

Spectacular military vehicles. Atmospheric 1940s entertainment. Explosive full battle displays daily. Collector opportunities amongst a wide range of Vintage and Militaria trade stands as well as some of the best high quality Food Stalls around whilst supporting nominated National and Local Military Charities.

No other military show has the unique signature attractions that have been built exclusively by Temple at War over the past years, with even more to come in 2020!
