Festival of Flight Banquet 2024

On arrival experience a formal drinks reception served in The Front Hall of the mansion with live music to accompany on Dorothy Shuttleworth’s own baby piano.

As the music plays you will be called to take your seats where our very own Shuttleworth pilots will be dining with you – a chance to speak with some of the key people who make our air displays happen – get inside stories and learn of what it takes to fly our aircraft.

Once desserts are ended you will be invited to explore the House at your own leisure and take in the rich history of the Shuttleworth family.

Live music will commence shortly after with local artists taking centre stage to play us through the evening where you are welcome to relax enjoy the life of luxury.
