Event Schedule

It's a little too soon to publish the full event schedule, we are not allocated air display slots until closer to the time, keep an eye on our social media accounts and check back here aroun a month before the event!

Hot Air Balloons

All of the Hot Air Ballooning activities are subject to weather conditions, balloons are fussy things and they cannot be safely inflated in breezy conditions (regardless of how sunny it is) or in the rain! The pilots will always try to do as much as they can, as a minimum we aim to carry out the night glow with just burners (which is actually quite spectacular!). It is not possible to book flights or rides in hot air balloons.
