Dig For Victory will return to the showground, in Bathing Pond Fields, for its fifth year on June 9-10, with 5,000 people expected to attend throughout the two days.

Bringing the 1940s back to North Somerset, the event will include 200 military and civilian vehicles, more than 40 re-enactment groups, and 1940s singing and dance lessons.

There will also be a Spitfire from The Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight joining the party on June 10.

Show organiser James Shopland said: “We are really proud as this is our fifth year at the showground.

“There is a real love for the show due to its fantastic atmosphere and this would not be possible without the support of our wonderful group of volunteers.

“It’s a huge honour for the show to receive a fly-past in the RAF’s 100th year and we are enormously grateful for the RAF’s support.”

The show has a full entertainment programme across two stages and well-known 1940s singers including The Marionettes, The Dixie Belles, Luna Nightingale and Dickie Lines will be performing.

The Saturday night victory dance is headlined by the Bristol Community Big Band with the vocals of John Prescott and conducted by trumpet legend, Jonny Bruce.

Dig For Victory will open from 10am-5pm on both days, with camping also available.
