5th and 6th July 2014 / Abbey Field
The Colchester Military Tournament is the biggest and best military event that Essex (and the UK!) will have seen. Staged on 35 acres of Abbey Field, near the garrison in Colchester, this two-day show has a jam-packed performance programme including a fly past by a Spitfire of the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and a dazzling routine from the Red Devils free-fall parachute team. There is also a re-enactment arena and living history encampment, a range of live music acts and a host of other family-friendly attractions.
