The Tank Museum is partnering with World of Tanks – and tank museums around the world – to create the first live-streamed historic tank event.
The event will be available to view on June 28 and will be broadcast on The Tank Museum’s YouTube and Facebook channels.
Tankfest Online will feature the famous tank arena show, historical content, tank demonstrations and a fundraiser to support The Tank Museum, which has been closed to the public since March due to Covid-19.
The fundraiser will support the museum in its efforts to preserve historic vehicles such as Tiger 131.
The weekend of June 26 to 28 would have been the 20th Anniversary of Tankfest, an event that was expected to attract around 25,000 visitors. However, it was postponed due to the Covid-19 restrictions.
Tankfest is the biggest fundraising event of the year for the museum and Tankfest Online is one of the many ways the facility hopes to recuperate some of the lost revenue.
Date: June 28, 3pm-6pm (BST).
