RAF Harrowbeer 1940s Weekend 14th & 15th August 2021

Our event is completely free for everyone to attend but we still need financial support. Because we were flooded out in 2018, and had to cancel the 2019 and 2020 events, our funds are low and we need sponsorship & donations to ensure we can go ahead with the event.

Please visit our ‘donations’ page for how you can help. Thank you for your support, and especially to those who have already made donations.

The 15th of August, 2021 is the 80th Anniversary of the Airfield opening and with the easing of COVID restrictions, the prospects of being able to hold our 80th Anniversary Event over the weekend of the 14th & 15th August 2021 are looking good. We are hoping that the current increase in Covid ‘delta’ infections does not see further restrictions. In the meantime, you can keep up to date by checking back here and visiting the 2021 Event page. If you are on Facebook, you can also visit our dedicated page for the event, alongside our usual RAF Harrowbeer page.

Keep Calm and Carry On!

We are pleased to confirm that the team from 1940sRADIO will be at our event providing music during the event!  So you’ll be able to come along and chat to Dave Dawes from 1940s radio. In the meantime, pop over to www.1940sradio.com and enjoy wall-to-wall (or ear-to-ear!) music from the 1940s! We’ll also have entertainment from Bern Stewart with songs of the period.

Stop-Press: More gremlins! We applied for a Battle of Britain Memorial Flight fly-past and they initially confirmed that they allocated the Lancaster to do a fly-past but it seems she is still ‘under repair’ so we will be having a flypast by the Dakota on Sunday the 15th, (no timings yet so please don’t ask!). This is very appropriate as Dakotas visited Harrowbeer in large numbers, especially following D-Day.

We have an open invitation for re-enactors, history groups, military and vintage vehicle owners to attend the event. Entry to all is free. Details on how you can apply are on the ‘2021 Event’ page. Vintage based trade stalls are also invited.
