A Year of New Experiences!

Dreaming up ways to bring you all-new experiences is part of what we do, and our special event days are no different. With a calendar bursting with unique opportunities, you'll always have a great reason to visit again and again! 

Our staple event is, of course, our peak season flying demonstrations, which you'll be able to enjoy daily from Good Friday until the last Sunday in September at no additional cost. We also hold monthly photography days that allow anyone with a camera to try their hand at a wildlife photography at just £40 per person.

For 2018, we have teamed up once again with our friends at the Knights of Skirbeck for two days of medieval mischief from May 6-7. Their encampment on our outdoor arena is a piece of living history where you'll be able to try on costumes and witness some spectacular re-enactment work.

For a full list of all currently confirmed dates, please see below. Check back soon because we'll be making even more announcements throughout the year! 

We endeavour to provide our visitors with a great value day out to suit all budgets. That's why many of our events are included at no extra charge with the price of your admission. For those looking for an even more affordable way to make the most of our offerings, purchasing a season ticket will provide you with the freedom to visit as often as you like for a whole year.
