Press and Media Information

The press team exists to facilitate journalists enquiries about the Essex HMVA or the Echoes of History Show (EOHshow), as well as helping to provide access to the wealth of information and knowledge gained from many years of preservation that our members have undertaken. We often get requests for vehicles or equipment for TV and film work. In the past, some of our members vehicles have been used as a background for news reports and featured in films such as "The Monuments Men" as well as TV shows such as "Wheeler Dealers".

Our vehicles and equipment are all privately owned, so we rely on the co-operation and availably of our members in cases where particular vehicles are required. Giving plenty of notice means we can get your request on our website or contact members directly, but we can often work to a tight deadline. To arrange access to our dedicated press area, please contact us.

Echoes of History Show

The Echoes of History Show gives the public the chance to have some fun, whilst educating them on the past. Our show format is tried and tested which others have emulated. We have run events for many years.

Our media team are here to assist you in gaining unprecedented access to the Premier Military show for the Essex and London areas. The show has previously been featured as part of recorded and live broadcasts from the show. Previous years have seen 10,000+ visitors and participants, 300+ classic vehicles, fantastic air displays, as well as 1,000+ living history re-enactors, all day-long live music and 1940's nostalgia. We recently moved to our new venue near Maldon at the picturesque Purleigh Halt Showground. This has already attracted much press interest, with filming and interviews expected to be taking place during the show. We are sure that our 2024 event will be our best so far, there has never been a better time to educate, celebrate, inform and remember.


Our event team can supply tailor-made corporate packages for a minimum of 10 people! We have a dedicated event team who will be able to assist you leading up to and during the show. Please get it contact for more details.

As a registered charity, we welcome sponsorship or commercial partnership opportunities, including some cost-effective advertising.
