Wheels of War 2019 Military Vehicle Show and Big Band Dance

Crewe and District Military Vehicle Club (CDMVC) are once again hosting Wheels of War – 2019 at The Crewe Heritage Centre on 14th & 15th September (SAT & SUN).

Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 5pm will see the Crewe Heritage Centre filled with dozens of vintage, classic & modern day military vehicles, WWII period model displays and dioramas along with mini working steam engines, rail carriages and working shunt engines.  There will also be local trade and memorabilia stands and even a George Forby ukulele band and vintage singer over the weekend.  On top of all this, there will be the usual on-site attractions that are waiting to be discovered at the Heritage Centre.  The weekend is being held to raise funds for the clubs nominated charity Help for Heroes.

Due to the great success of last year’s event with thousands of visitors coming to the show, CDMVC along with the Crewe Heritage Centre will once again hold the event over two days and hold our annual 1940’s Dance on Saturday evening.  The Dance will replicate a 1940’s wartime atmosphere and guests are encouraged to dig out the vintage clothing to complete the theme.  Entertainment will be provided thanks to the Wychcraft Big Band, a 20 piece orchestra who emulate traditional big bands. The themed evening will also include a meal as part of this years ticket price.

Phillip Podmore, one of the Founders of CDMVC, said ‘Since the first Wheels of War Show in 2009, thanks to the volunteers and vehicle enthusiasts, the event has attracted more and more people each year.  We are thrilled to continue our support to the Help 4 Heroes charity, and hold a great event in Crewe’

Tickets for the daytime Wheels of War Show can be bought on the gate at the Crewe Heritage Centre at £3.50 Adults, Children and Concessions £2 and a Family Ticket is £10.00.

If you would like to head back to the 1940s and take part in the Dance, tickets are still available at £15 per seat (inc Meal) and can be purchased on the clubs website (The Cat is not responsible for external websites).
