The 4th April 2009 marks the 70th anniversary of the formation of The Royal Armoured Corps and The Tank Museum will be hosting a special event to celebrate the date that brought the British armoured regiments together.

Normal admission fees will apply and pre-booking will not be necessary – allowing annual ticket holders to re-visit for free.

In the arena, there will be free displays of selected historic armour from the Royal Armoured Corps past and the British Army will also be displaying the vehicles it uses on operations today. From the Valentine and Sherman to the Challenger 2 and Warrior, there will be over 20 tanks showing their paces in the Museum’s impressive new arena. The highlight of the arena displays will be the British Army demonstration of a section attack – complete with blank firing weapons and pyrotechnics.

On the Museum floor there will be a range of free talks, tours, drill demonstrations and family activity trails to enjoy – including a free performance by the Light Cavalry Band. The Royal Armoured Corps Parachute Display Team are scheduled to make a special entrance (weather permitting).

Serving Royal Armoured Corps soldiers, many who have returned from active service in Iraq & Afghanistan will be displaying their kit – visitors will be able to handle modern equipment and chat with them about their experiences on the front line.

The changing face of warfare will be demonstrated in handling sessions of equipment used over the last 70 years and beyond – including an opportunity to climb into a first world war tank and the chance to meet `Tommy` in the Trenches.
Those interested in finding out about relatives who have served in the Royal Tank Regiment & Royal Armoured Corps will also be able to visit the Museum’s Archive and Library free of charge.

Significantly, visitors will have the chance to see the brand new exhibition “The Tank Story” in our new display hall, which will be admitting the public for the very first time. This exciting new exhibition tells the story of the tank from its World War One origin to the future, and is the key element of a £16m Heritage Lottery Fund sponsored redevelopment of The Museum.
