29th-30th September 2018

The ‘Cotswold Airport Revival Festival’ returns by popular demand for a second year… and it will be twice as big!

On 29th and 30th September Cotswold Airport is throwing open its gates to the public once again for its incredible vintage and wartime extravaganza, the ‘Cotswold Airport Revival Festival’. Last year saw the inaugural launch of this hugely popular event, which started out as an informal fundraising Open Day for 500 people, and ended up as a major event with over 10,000 visitors! Due to the tremendous success of last year’s event, Cotswold Airport has teamed up with ‘Live Promotions Events Ltd’, a powerhouse of an organisation that has been putting on famous large-scale events including Truckfest, Pistons & Props and many big-name concerts such as Tom Jones, UB40 and Billy Ocean for over 50 years. The fusion of Cotswold Airport and Live Promotions will bring to the public one of the UK’s most unforgettable events, seeing visitors pouring in from all over the country. The festival is an annual event, that will happen every year during the last weekend in September.

The event this year will be a two-day event, and is set to be an absolutely unforgettable weekend with lots of exciting activities and attractions for all the family. Both days will be packed full of dramatic re-enactments and demonstrations; thrilling vintage air displays; exciting rides and experience flights; hundreds of vintage and military vehicles; full size and miniature steam engines; and plenty of entertainment including period live music.

Star features not to be missed include: · A huge display of vintage, military and emergency services vehicles and planes · Vintage plane flypasts and fly-in · A kids’ play zone with giant inflatable slide, toddler play zone, vintage pedal cars · Winston Churchill speeches throughout the weekend · A fabulous funfair · Wartime re-enactments · Simulator experiences · Steam traction engines · Pleasure flights in light aircraft and helicopters · Model aircraft static display · Boeing 747 pop-up WWI and RAF100 museum · Live period music · Airport fire crew crash demo of a rescue from a burning aircraft · Incredible rescue demonstration by a lifeboat hovercraft · Beer tent and food stalls · Shopping village · And much much more… 2018 is an especially important year for an event such as this. It marks the centenary of the end of WWI and also 100 years of the RAF. These two key anniversaries will be marked at this year’s Cotswold Airport Revival Festival with fundraising initiatives for the Royal British Legion and Flying for Freedom, two charities that support the armed forces and veterans. Cotswold Airport was formerly an RAF maintenance base, and later on was home to the red Arrows, and there remain many links today with its historic roots. The aerodrome celebrates two of its own anniversaries this year as well – 80 years of the aerodrome being situated on the site at Kemble; and 15 years of the current owner, Ronan Harvey, and ex-RAF engineer himself, owning the current airport.

The Federation of Sidecar Clubs

will be holding a Day Meet at the Jet Age Museum on 7 October 2018

Meet at the Museum at any time from 10:30 am (we will be there all day!).

Entry to the Museum is free.

There is a café, but please note that it only serves drinks and cakes.

The Jet Age Museum Meteor Business Park, Cheltenham Road East, Gloucester GL2 9QL

The jet engine was designed by British engineering genius Sir Frank Whittle (1907–1996). His son Ian is a patron of Jet Age Museum. Britain’s first jet plane, the Gloster E28/39, powered by Whittle’s revolutionary invention, first left the ground on 8 April 1941 at the Gloster factory-airfield between Gloucester and Cheltenham. Its official first flight was at RAF Cranwell, Lincolnshire, on 15 May 1941. The original aeroplane can be seen in London’s Science Museum.

Jet Age Museum volunteers have built a full-size replica which is proudly on display. Other Gloster-built aircraft are currently on view, such as examples of Britain’s first jet fighter, the Meteor, and the Cold War-era Javelin and a fully-detailed reproduction 1925 Gamecock biplane. Ongoing restoration projects include rebuilding an RAF Gladiator biplane which crashed in Norway in 1940 and a late World War Two Gloster-built Hawker Typhoon.

Other aircraft, engines and exhibits, make interesting viewing in the display hall, while the the museum’s outstanding document and photographic archive, are now housed in a purpose built facility.
