Longleat’s Military Spectacular

If you are interested in the Armed Forces, then Longleat’s Military Spectacular is the event you have been waiting for. Our Longleat accommodation is privy to the details, so read on to find out what to expect!

On 30th September and 1st October 2017, Longleat will be inviting one and all to celebrate the achievements and dedication of our incredible Armed Forces. Known for solid values of community and patriotism, our Armed Forces deserve to take over the historic Longleat Estate, so this is one event you and your family won’t want to miss.

So Much More Than Transport

Visitors can expect to see impressive armoured combat vehicles such as the Challenger 2 Battle Tank and a Panther before their very eyes; not to mention a Warrior, a Bulldog AFV, a Javelin 81mm Mortar and an array of Coyote Tactical Support Vehicles. Forces personnel will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about the vehicles so this is a truly unique opportunity to learn.

See For Yourself

Have you or your family ever wanted the experience of handling Armed Forces approved kit? Now is your chance. With a range of interactive workshops, visitors can use virtual reality headsets and be taught how to cook, think and fight like a soldier. For visitors who prefer to learn from a distance, prepared to be awestruck by a special display from the REME parachute team. Eight glowing paras will showcase their skills and leap in formation before landing in front of Longleat House.

Step To It

With musical processions from the Royal Artillery Band and much to learn, this event is perfect for those wishing to fully immerse themselves in the world of combat and Armed Forces. The Longhouse event space will play host to several inspiring individuals who will take centre stage to share their stories and motivations. There will also be a whole host of historical talks to help educate all in attendance on the rules, roles and reach of our forces.
