Wargaming is once again partnering with The Tank Museum, Bovington, to sponsor Tankfest, one of the world’s best displays of historic armoured vehicles, held 25-26 June 2016. Last year’s event saw almost 20,000 enthusiasts from around the world visit Bovington, with tickets selling out for the first time since the inaugural Tankfest in 2000.
The highlights of Tankfest 2016 will include the Tiger 131, Panzer III, Comet, Centurion and Fury—the Sherman tank from the award-winning Brad Pitt film—in action alongside a number of others.
“We are very pleased to announce the next phase of this important and ongoing strategic partnership with Wargaming,” said Richard Smith, Tank Museum Director. “World of Tanks has proven itself to be a crucial way in which The Tank Museum can engage a newer and younger audience with the fascinating history of armored warfare.”
Alongside an unrivalled display of historic moving armour, living history encampments, and access to the Museum itself, which houses a collection of 300 tanks from the First World War to the present day, visitors will be treated to mock battle reenactments and a live display from the British Army. Wargaming will be hosting a major World of Tanks experience zone, where visitors will be able to try the game on a variety of platforms, as well as meet some of the developers and personalities from the Wargaming community.
