Bunker Bash, Kelvedon Hatch, nr Brentwood Essex, Saturday 16th May 2009

A few of us from the Olympus Safari Group are planning to go to the Bunker Bash at the secret nuclear bunker, nr Brentwood, Essex on Saturday 16th May.

The event sound like it will have some good photo opportunities.

4th Living History & Military Show to be held at this unique location.

On Display will be a large variety of living history displays, military vehicles and exhibitions.

There will be many arena events throughout the day, including vehicle parades, firepower displays and battle re-enactments.

Also returning will be the Emergency Services display where the firefighters will demonstrate their firefighting and vehicle rescue skills.

Further details can be found at: -

Question Re: Bunker Bash, Kelvedon Hatch, nr Brentwood Essex, Saturday 16th May 2009

Are there any meeting arrangements? or is it all down to "spot the Oly" ?

Graham

There are meeting arrangements. I've not generally published them because I was waiting to hear back from the organisers as to the opening time.

I believe the venue opens at 10am (it is not confirmed anywhere, but that is the normal time of opening on non-event days), so I was going to suggest meeting around then.

I'm not sure where you will have to buy entry tickets, but assuming it is a pedestrian entrance (don't buy tickets as you drive in) I am suggesting we meet near there before entering the venue (I'm sure you will be able to spot a gaggle of Oly's a mile away). If there isn't a defined pedestrian entrance the next best place to meet is the bungalow (entrance to the bunker).

If you are interested in attend, just send me a private message and I'll make sure your kept up to date with any developments and provide you with my mobile number in case your delayed / lost / can't find us.

Regards

Simon

Forgot to mention, I believe they are only accepting cash for entry tickets (7 for adults).
