VAME Meet 3 is booked for Saturday 8th June, the same venue (in Quorn just outside Loughborough) as VAME Meet 2 last year, starting at 10.30am, finishing at 2.30pm to leave some time to clear up.  I have the hall booked until 4pm.
 
As before, it is timed to coincide with the wonderful WW2 weekend at the Great Central Railway nearby.  I'll post a formal announcement with some more details soon, but you already know the way! grin

Brilliant, Mike


Looking forward to it.  The last one I went to was even better than the V&A Museum day and that's saying something.  I'm glad it coincides with the WW2 day, a great excuse to bring the family.

I hope this one's a record turn out, it would be nice to put some more names to faces.

I can smell a cunning plan here...tell the Wife I'm gonna take her & the Kids to the great Central railway for a mooch about the WW2 weekend and bonus! - "some folks are selling VAM over there, I may as well have a look whilst we're here oh flowerpot of the orient" BOOM! everyone's a winner!

I'm collecting all this VAM stuff for the kids future love, honest !

The WW2 weekend is a massive event that takes place over three days starting on the Friday.  The main display is at Quorn, just a short walk from the VAME Meet, with US military hardware, tanks, guns etc.  There are stalls where you can buy genuine WW2 guns and stuff if that floats your boat, a beer tent with WW2 era music, etc.  I always enjoy the vintage aircraft flypast, although the best is usually reserved for the Sunday (normally a Spitfire flying around the station and alongside the steam trains).  There are several reenactments during the day at different stations.

I posted a few photos of the WW2 event from a previous year here:

A full family ticket usually costs something like £35 to £40, which isn't cheap, but it does give you unlimited rides on the steam trains all day and access to all the displays and events throughout the day.
