Night at the Tank Museum


Night at the Tank Museum is coming up Like photographing aeroplanes, but with tanks

The Tank Museum and are teaming up to bring enthusiasts a truly unique tank photography experience on 17 September.

With the evenings drawing in, ticket holders will have exclusive close-up access to a range of tanks in The Tank Museum’s arena: all lit by Threshold’s LED lights.
The tanks on display will span a century of armoured history - from the World War I Mark IV replica, all the way through to Challenger 1.
With no visitors to get in the way, ticket holders can take advantage of Threshold’s crisp white 5000K LED lights - which reduce glare and minimise shadows to get the perfect shot!
Threshold was launched in 2017 by aviation photography enthusiasts Andrew Morley and Paul Varcoe, who wanted to provide a truly unique photography experience to fellow aficionados. Paul Varcoe said, “Our number one mission has been to provide something enthusiasts usually can't get, while supporting operators and owners by raising money for their charities and trusts. We thought it would be a great idea to recreate our aviation photography events with military vehicles. What better place to start than The Tank Museum at Bovington! It will be fascinating to see how some of the most famous tanks in history look, lit by our lights and pictured by some great photographers.”
All tanks will be well spaced to guarantee visitor safety and this will also provide plenty of room to get some great shots. Night at The Tank Museum will run from 4:30pm–9:30pm on 17 September. Tickets include a hot meal and a soft drink. See The Tank Museum’s website for more details: Tank Musuem.
