The Midlands Air Festival will return next year to its original location of Ragley Hall in Warwickshire on 4 – 6 June 2021.
The organisers say:
After a year of postponed events across the country due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the organisers of the annual event continue to move forward with their plans for the 2021 festival with Covid-secure procedures in place, should they be required.
The ticketed event will feature the largest display of special shape character hot air balloons in Europe, with over 40 of these amazing giants registered to attend. In addition, organisers have already secured the mighty B-17 bomber to headline the exhilarating programme of air displays.
Mark Lockwood, spokesperson for the Midlands Air Festival, commented: “The global Covid-19 pandemic has devastated the events and entertainment industry over the last eight months and we are delighted to be able to announce the return of the Midlands Air Festival next year to give families, aviation enthusiasts, and balloon lovers alike, a positive, aspirational and visually spectacular event to look forward to in 2021.
The stunning Ragley Hall estate offers thousands of acres to enable us to host an amazing air festival for locals, national and international visitors alike, whilst still allowing ample space for sufficient social distancing and a relaxing experience. Over the coming months we will be finalising our spectacular air display programme and we look forward to sharing that with everyone in the very near future.”
Demand to open ticket sales has been growing, with many people wishing to give tickets as Christmas presents, so organisers are releasing a special offer for ticket buyers who purchase before Christmas. Every ticket holder will benefit from reduced ticket prices and a free premium parking ticket will be included with their purchase, allowing visitors to park closer to the showground.
With over 100 hot air balloons in attendance and such an extraordinary number of special shape balloons, the twice-daily hot air balloon mass ascents at dawn and dusk will provide an unrivalled spectacle. Some of the special shape balloons include The Orient Express making its debut appearance at the festival all the way from The Netherlands, thanks to the Team for Old Balloons; The Head, a massive flying piece of art designed by Swedish artist, Peter
