The Victory Show – Cosby – 8 September 2013

The Victory Show is one of a number of military re-enactment based events around the country, and must be one of the largest. The main land battle itself lasts for nearly an hour and includes some seriously powerful pyrotechnics, with impressive percussion levels, and they continue throughout the battle which must make for some highly complex choreography to ensure the safety of the combatants.

The surrounding fields and woods offered a plethora of historical military themed set-pieces and displays:
