I heard about this event, which falls between War and Peace (July) and Military Odessey ( end of August)
War and Peace I believe has its final year at its current location, so I wonder were it will end up?

When W&P moved to Folkestone it lost some of its appeal...IMHO ( notwithstanding the fact that it takes me about 6hrs to drive there from S.Wales!) I attended the first two, but didn't go last year, nor will I be going this year. I've no idea what changes, if any, the new owners might make. We'll have to wait and see! I suspect that Beltring II is being organized by a kind of "splinter group" who are disgruntled with what W&P has become?

BTW...for the benefit of our non-British members, Beltring is a place in the county of Kent, England. For more than 20 years it was the venue for Europe's biggest militaria show, War & Peace, which moved its location to Folkestone (also in Kent) about 4 years ago. Thus "Beltring" is very well known among British and European military enthusiasts and will forever be synonymous with that event.
