Noisy, vibrant, fun, historical and a great weekend. This was my first time at the Victory show. It has everything you need in a re-enactment weekend, from bars to burger vans. A camp site, 100 acres of vehicles, displays, vendors and much much more. You...More

There are not many things that I would give 5 stars to but The Victory Show is one of them. It's not just a big re-enactment and vast array of stalls and vehicles but also has a 'community' feel about it. Yes the land owner...More

Really great show - our 2nd time here, in 2015. The air and ground displays are amazing - a credit to the organisers and volunteers. Already booked for 2016 - can't wait!

It never ceases to amaze me as to how much they can fit into such a small area. Great ' live' action as well as great settings in the woods. This annual event is a real must.

So, as a re-enactor, this remains the must attend event for the year. Partly because of the air show and the excellent displays but also because it seems to attract a genuinely interested public as well: Much more than many other events. Some of the...More

You can catch the 84 bus from St Margarets bus station in Leicester city centre. I recommend getting off at the Park Close stop in Cosby. walk towards the co-op, then turn right and follow the croft road.
