Thames Traditional Boat Festival

Thames Traditional Boat Festival

Resulting from the IMPS Dunkirk Anniversary tour the organisers of this regular event for boat owners and classic car enthusiasts have invited owners of Military Vehicles dating from 1940 to the 70s to join them, particularly to compliment the Dunkirk Little Ships that will be attending. Unfortunately tracked vehicles cannot be accepted due to the nature of the ground. Entry to exhibiting vehicle, driver and crew is free as is the camping. MVs have a special display area close to the Dunkirk Little Ships. MV owners will be made very welcome. Bring your kit along to display with your vehicle. This is a different, and prestigious, event from the from usual MV show, and should be very enjoyable. Fill in the form online and Lyndon York will be in contact with you. Lyndon York
