Shuttleworth Air Show Season 2023

There’s nothing quite like an Air Show at Shuttleworth Collection and Gardens. The atmosphere, the buzz, the noise and excitement.  So much going on both in the air and on the ground, and an impressive aircraft line-up for every show.  Join our Pilots for an exclusive chat, picnic in the paddocks or enjoy a vintage bus ride and tour of Shuttleworth House. Every Air Show is different, with unique entertainment on the ground for kids and adults alike, including interactive Discovery Zones, live music and vehicle parades.

Join us for our 2023 air show season, from May to October and save now with our generous early booking discounts.

Showcasing firm favourites, such as Military and Best of British, we’ll also be entertaining you with new air shows, such as Around the World, King & Country and Carnival.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see Shuttleworth’s world-class aviation Collection take to the air, with an array of visiting aircraft further enhancing the experience.

The team here at Shuttleworth believe we have one of the finest locations for air displays in the United Kingdom with our grass aerodrome originally set up by Richard Shuttleworth in the 1930s and unparalleled opportunities for photographers as aircraft pass round the famous Shuttleworth Control Tower. However we are always striving to improve the experience for our customers. We are therefore pleased to announce a series of measures which the team have been working hard on over this past winter. These include:

  • A review of all paddocks and parking arrangements to maximise visitor parking ‘closer to the action’ on the grass paddocks adjacent to the runway
  • Opening up earlier to enable early arrivals onto the paddocks to get their spot
  • And in a cost of living crisis the team have focused hard on reducing internal costs which has meant we have been able to drop our ‘on the gate’ ticket prices for Sunday air shows and Saturday evening flying events.
