Saturday 20 August 2016

It’s the 19th year of this popular event, which is one of the highlights of the season at The Shuttleworth Collection. You’ll be watching vintage aircraft perform aerial displays to much loved classical themes performed by the 50-piece National Symphony Orchestra. With all of the atmosphere and fun of a truly British Proms and the excitement of watching Shuttleworth Collection aircraft display.

Swiss Garden will be open so take a stroll around this picturesque gem that is a relaxing retreat in which new vistas are revealed at every turn. With 13 listed structures, an adjacent woodland sculpture trail and three resident peacocks, the Swiss Garden is a delight to explore. The House will be open for viewing and with tea & cake on offer to purchase. Our vintage buses will be running between the aerodrome & The House (whilst open) and are free to ride.

Closing with a thrilling firework display featuring the illuminated models this year’s Flying Proms at Shuttleworth won’t disappoint!
