RAF Harrowbeer 1940s Weekend
Our new website here is almost finished but please check our current website: click here
The RAF Harrowbeer 1940s Weekend takes place on the 11th & 12th August 2018. It is completely FREE for everyone to attend.
The centre-piece of our show, is the Spitfire Spares, replica MkIX Spitfire with the working Merlin engine. The engine is started on the hour throughout the day, by members of the public who have booked the Spitfire Experience. Climbing into the cockpit and pressing the starter on a 27ltr Rolls Royce Merlin is something not to be missed! You can also come along and have your photo taken sitting in the cockpit. Spitfire Experience booking has sold out for the 2018 event!
Each day there will be a raffle to win a ‘Spitfire Experience’ and lots of other prizes too. The draw will take place at 3.30pm and the winner will enjoy their ‘Experience’ half-an-hour later at 4pm. Tickets @ £1 each will be available from the RAF Harrowbeer Interest Group stand (near the Spitfire).
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight have offered us a Spitfire Flypast on not just one, but both days of our event this August! We are so pleased that they have chosen to come and fly over our event once again and we can’t wait to see them, having been thrilled with the sight and sound of Spitfire TE311 at last year’s 1940s Weekend.
Planning for this year’s event is well under way. It will be on the 11th & 12th August 2018, from 10am to 5pm daily.
Application forms for Re-Enactors, Exhibitors and Traders are now available on the Trade & Exhibitor Information page. Vintage vehicle owners are welcome to drop by on either day.
