The Great Balloon Race is coming to Shuttleworth. This 3 day event will see the skies filled with colour as these gentle giants take flight. Together with fantastic entertainment including aerial acrobatics, balloon night glow and giant fireworks display.

Balloons of all shapes and sizes will be attending and taking part in the Great Balloon Race. Which one will be your favourite? Once the balloons have floated into the distance be wowed by the SkyRascal paramotor display team who will perform aerial displays of agility using their – straight from a Bond movie – paramotors. We are also delighted to have a UK first from SkyDance, An aerial spectacle suspended over 100ft in the air from a crane.
