The Dig for Victory Show is a 1940s themed festival being held in the summer of 2014 at the North Somerset Showground near Bristol. Our vision is to provide our local community with an affordable, family orientated weekend event to explore this turbulent yet thought-provoking period in our recent history. We will bring history alive and the generations together with a sense of nostalgia and pride - to learn, remember and have fun.
The event is in its fourth consecutive year attracting more than 8,000 people in 2013. We are working with local schools and businesses in addition to supporting The Army Benevolent Fund and the Children’s Hospice South West.
Come and celebrate the 'Best of British' and life in the 40s with re-enactors demonstrating what life was like in wartime Britain, an exhibition of over 25 original restored wartime vehicles, veterans sharing their stories, traditional craft demonstrations, locally-grown produce stalls, vintage clothing, farmyard animals, traditional fairground rides, a children's trail and much more....
This event is organised by the Shopland Collection and the Western Branch of the Invicta Military Vehicle Preservation Society, with the support of the North Somerset Agricultural Society and The Blitz Buddies.
