The Great War Society attends and takes part in events all over the United Kingdom, as well as overseas on the Western Front.

These are both for independent sponsors (such as the National Trust, English Heritage, Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome, the Shuttleworth Collection, the Tank Museum etc.), or organised by the Society itself for training and commemorative purposes.

If you wish to book the Society for your event, please get in touch with us via the "CONTACT" page of the website.
