The War and Peace Revival was due to be held at the Hop Showground, Kent, again this year, at the end of July, but the owners of the Showground have decided not to allow it to go ahead, in the interests of public safety. The organisers of War and Peace released the following statement: ‘The Hop Farm Show Ground has made the decision not to allow the War & Peace Show to take place 2020. It’s with deep sadness we have to inform all the visitors and traders WAP can’t take place.
In true Dunkirk spirit we have been working tirelessly over the weeks putting things in place altering formats, revamping the show layout, altering visitor attractions endless meetings with our H&S department to enable WAP to meet the ever changing government Guidelines. One thing is for sure we did our very best for you, the traders to put WAP on and keep your business alive.
The Visitor. We are sorry we can’t deliver your fantastic holiday experience!
Annie and I would like to thank the support and encouragement from all traders and the wonderful phones calls from all you visitors.
John & Annie – The War & Peace Show.’
