We hope everyone is safe and well. We all need something to look forward to, so make sure you have next years dates in the diary...it's going to be a bumper year!
Subsequent to the recent government announcement on curtailing large gatherings and our concerns for the rapidly changing developments of the Coronavirus pandemic, the organisers of the Midlands Air Festival have reluctantly had no option but to cancel this year’s event, which was to take place at Ragley Hall on the 29th to 31st May.
The health and safety of our visitors is of course our primary and overriding concern and throughout the last months we have already been including additional measures and mitigation in our event planning to protect our audience, pilots, teams, traders and volunteers. Sadly, the UK and worldwide situation has overtaken us and we have no option but to cancel this fantastic event for this year. All tickets purchased so far will be automatically refunded subject to our ticketing providers, See Tickets, standard terms and conditions.
Both James and I are extremely sorry for any justifiable disappointment and inconvenience this may cause but on the positive side, we and our team are already enthusiastically planning next years show, carrying forward the exciting surprises we had arranged and adding ever more spectacle to this unique event.
We are therefore delighted to announce that the Midlands Air Festival will return to our home of Ragley Hall on the 4th, 5th and 6th of June 2021.
In the meantime, stay safe and we look forward to seeing all of you back at Ragley Hall for another stunning Air Festival next year.
Trev Graham & James McDonald – The Midlands Air Festival
On International Women’s Day, we are delighted to announce that our first display aircraft will be the amazing Lauren Wilson performing stunning high energy aerobatics in her bright red Pitts Bi-plane.
For some years Lauren honed her skills on the air display circuit, inspiring girls and women all over the country to believe that sometimes even their wildest dreams can come true.
Lauren left the aerobatics world to achieve another ambition to become an airline pilot, however she is taking a break from the world of commercial aviation for a season back in her beloved Pitts special, the quintessential aerobatics aircraft.
Lauren will have the honour to open our air display and then return to the show for an interview, followed by an opportunity to meet Lauren and ask any questions you may have on her amazing story.
