Frequently Given Advice & Requests from the Throckmorton Airshow Team

  • Please ‘Drive to Arrive’. Set off in good time to arrive between 10am when the show ground opens and by 11:30am before the displays start. Parking opens from 8am.
  • Be Prepared: Please dress suitable for the weather (planned and unexpected). This includes sun cream, hats and hopefully not ponchos and wellies!
  • Be prepared: Batteries. Charge them. phones and cameras. Make sure you have contact numbers for those in your party (you’ll be surprised…).
  • Stay refreshed: It’s surprising how weathered you get on an air field. Please drink sensibly and take on plenty of soft drinks to keep hydrated.
  • Plan: If you’re attending with children or grown ups who like to wonder, choose a meeting point to always find each other. Synchronise watches. Check you have each others numbers before you set off.

  • Please help us keep a safe site for everyone, including the aircraft displaying.Please place all litter in a bin provided or take it home with you.
