Best of British Show at Cotswold Airport
26 - 27 August
This family event offers visitors two fun-packed days out combining the Best of British aviation, automotive, agriculture and music.
Cotswold Airport is famous for its annual air show and aviation fans need not be disappointed with a three-hour air show for all to enjoy. British military favourites the RAF Red Arrows, RAF Hawk and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight are joined by civilian display teams such as Tiger Nine with a nostalgic nine-ship Tiger Moth display and Ultimate High who will provide an unlimited 'gyroscopic' aerobatic display.
The show arena offers fun family entertainment with lurcher and ferret racing, the Lamb National, birds of prey and an RSPCA-sponsored dog show with live commentary.
Children, young and old, can get up close and personal with spiders, snakes, meercats and chickens at the interactive wildlife zoo. Short talks and educational displays will be provided by Wildlife Displays, an established mobile zoo since 1978.
A classic car exhibition featuring iconic British brands such as Rolls Royce will display a variety of vintage vehicles, while military vehicles symbolising the Best of British transport from the Armed Forces completes the journey through Britain’s colourful motoring heritage.
When it’s time to kick back and relax, a sound stage featuring up and coming local bands and traditional British music from yesteryear provides the perfect ambience, while a traditional fun fair adds to the nostalgia of the event.
Locally-sourced food and drink can be found in the country-fair style Craft Tent featuring organic, quality British produce. And don’t miss the Red London Bus when it’s time for a beer or glass of Pimms!
The Best of British Show will be supporting four charities over the weekend; The RAF Benevolent Fund, Fly2Help, Help for Heroes and the RSPCA.
