    At £20 per unit per night the campsite looks a bit expensive but does have, showers, toilets & a clubhouse - perhaps if a lot of Funsters show interest in this then could ask AHA events for a reduced rally rate? Alternatively package deal/reduction with Air Show ticket which is normally £20-25 for each adult.
    Can see on website that they offer reductions on tickets for groups of 12 or more.

    People do travel from all over the world for this Air Show & it was a great spectacle with loads going on when we last went a few years ago(y)
    Big day meet possibility or just discounted group tickets for those that are in travelling distance?

    Great to see the interest (y) For tickets the website says that can get a discount if buying 12 or more tickets so can anyone registering interest here add how many tickets they would want & whether just day visitors or may want to rally ? Hopefully once Jemhorn can gauge the demand he might be able a negotiate a pitch & ticket discount :call:
    We would want 3 tickets & may want to rally for 1-2 nights depending on price (we only live a short drive away :))

    We went a few years back ( on the 80th anniversary ) camped with ccc temporary hol site just up the road about a mile away , downhead lane I believe. cycled down & watched from outside the base for free, great display.

    You aren't really wrong as there is this option as well (wonder if they would let us take our motorhomes in?!) on Friday 10th July :
    PHOTOCALL - 10TH JULY
    Enthusiasts have the chance to drive onto the airfield and use one of the private enclosures situated on the Flight Line to view aircraft arrivals and display practices on the 10 July.

    1st Entry Time: 0900-1000

    2nd Entry Time: 1300-1400

    3rd Entry Time: 1700-1730

    Enthusiasts must remain in the enclosure till early evening, when arrivals and display practices have been completed, for safety reasons. This will be between 1830 and 1900 but ask that you are accommodating should times overrun.

    Air Day personnel will then direct you to the static aircraft areas, which will be open until 2030.

    Please note this is subject to change due to weather, serviceability or operational commitments.

    Toilet and refreshment facilities are available.

    Tickets priced at £18 in advance on the day.

    Joint Photocall and Air Day packages are also available in advance.

    Hi all, I'll be talking with AHA the event organisers next week to see if a deal is available will post with more info when known. Not knowing much about it but it seems a rally is brewing?
