About this event

We are delighted to announce this brand new event at the Norfolk Tank Museum for a great day of photography with some truly iconic tanks including Guy Martins WW1 Mk IV tank Deborah. This will be a static tank event with the tanks posed for us in a field adjacant to the museum. We will also have a host of authentic re-enactors available to really set the scenes with these fascinating machines, with the option of wide angle shots of the whole scene and up close portraits. The Norfolk Tank Museum holds a unique collection and the tanks available for us to photograph will be:
WW1 Mk IV tank Deborah.
Centurion AVRE
Centurion Mk 13 main battle tank
Chieftain Main Battle tank
Saladin Armoured Car
Sultan Command post
And if restoration meets its expected completion we also hope to have the following:
Sabre and Fox and a replica German STUG III

This event will run from 13:00-20:30 with a refreshment break in the middle, the museum has a tea room on site where you can purchase drinks and light snacks. The event is being run ahead of the museums big Tank Fest weekend so its the perfect excuse to make a long weekend of it.
