Tiger 131, one of the tank stars of Brad Pitt’s World War Two blockbuster ‘Fury’, will make the last of its two yearly outings at The Tank Museum on September 14.
The Bovington museum’s Tiger 131 is the only running Tiger I in the world and visitors to the museum will get the chance to see it in action at Tiger Day 12 during a 45 minute display along with its movie co-star, the Sherman tank ‘Fury’.
This will also be the last chance for many visitors to explore ‘The Tiger Collection’, which will finish at the end of October, in preparation for the new World War Two Hall.
In a world first, this impressive exhibition has brought every member of the Tiger Tank family together in one display – including one in augmented reality.
During the 45 minute lunchtime display at Tiger Day 12, Tiger 131 will be accompanied by a selection of museum vehicles.
The Tank Museum is also giving Tiger fans the chance to win a ride in its most famous exhibit in a special charity auction and raffle.
Two lucky winners will take their seat in the famous tank on September 14 at Tiger Day.
Museum spokesman David Willey said: “Tiger 131 is the famous tank in the world and there are a lot of tank fans who will jump at the chance for a ride in this World War Two icon.”
All profits from the Tiger raffle and Ebay auction will go towards supporting the museum’s historic tank collection and ensuring that Tiger 131 can be kept in running order for years to come.
Tiger Day Raffle, Premium and Advance tickets are still available. Tickets must be purchased in advance – book online at https://tankmuseum.org/whats-on/events/tiger-day
