    Nothing to do with Wallace and Grommet, but the Chalke Valley History festival, in Wiltshire. This takes place at the end of June, and although it is primarily aimed at book lovers, there are - for the forst time - many displays of militaria and such like.
    There will be a demonstration of WW2 weaponry by James Hiolland ( author of the Jack Tanner novels), sword fencing and much else.

    Well worth attending and in a lovely area. And there is a bar.

    Do go, it is a very rewarding experience.

    I have to agree, I was there last year as well and well worth the effort .... if you like this sort of thing!
  3. Ooooh no. Broad Chalke. I was in the Bower Chalke/Ebbsbourne Wake massive. They talk funny in Broad Chalke.
