Military history enthusiasts will be able to learn more about 20th century conflicts by attending Tankfest, an event taking place at the Tank Museum in Bovington on June 29th and 30th 2013.

Visitors will be able to catch a glimpse of amazing war machines in full working order and gain insights into the strengths and weaknesses of these incredible inventions, as well as learning about the key role they have played in recent military conflicts.

The finale of the show is an exciting mock battle that explores what might have happened if the Cold War had escalated into full-blown conflict, examining the tactics NATO could have used to repel a Soviet attack.

Tankfest could appeal to luxury Dorset hotel guests who are enjoying a Quintessential British Experience package at The Summer Lodge Hotel, which includes a full English breakfast each morning and a Best of English cocktail served on arrival.

Other perks include an afternoon tea, a three-course meal and a free copy of Bea Tollman's cookbook A Life in Food.
