May – October 2021

The perfect family day out! Expect to enjoy a thrilling air display, and ground activities to keep everyone entertained. Shuttleworth is home to vintage vehicles, motorcycles, and over 50 historic aircraft, with an adjacent 19th century Regency Swiss Garden.

2021 sees the return of the award-winning Drive In Air Displays from the Shuttleworth Trust.

This year, we are guaranteeing the format of the Drive In shows for the May, June and July shows and for the Flying Circus in August.

The Shuttleworth Flying Circus is a completely new Drive-In Evening Air Display with incredible and popular barn storming air displays; jaw dropping roving circus performers keeping you entertained from your covid-secure parking box; the famous twilight aerobatic pyrotchenic display and a bonanza fireworks display.  Whether a flying circus means to you the Red Baron or the Ministry of Silly Walks, you’ll find it all at the Shuttleworth Flying Circus.


Our new pricing structure will help visitors in smaller groups and without a car to attend our shows.  It will also help us if we are able to change our formats back to traditional shows for the August, September and October air shows.

Each party must book EITHER a 5×5 metre box for a car/family of 5 OR a 2.5×5 meter box for up to two pedestrians/cyclists/motorcyclists OR a 4.5×8 metre oversized car space for all vehicles over 2 meters high, 2.5 meters wide or 5 meters in length.

Each person then must have a valid air show ticket.

If the law changes to allow the formats of later shows to accept greater audiences, then we will refund the box price and parking will resume in our standard parking format of adjacent close-spaced cars.

If you are shielding and want to guarantee a covid-secure box, then please stick to the May, June, July and Flying Circus shows.  Covid-secure boxes cannot be guaranteed for the later shows.
