TWINWOOD FESTIVAL NEWS !!!
EXTRA ROOM FOR DANCERS ON THE MAIN ARENA
Due to popular demand the 2010 Festival sees a new dance floor being laid in the arena. This floor is in addition to the existing one and has its own sound system and extra lighting.
NEW CARAVAN AND CAMPING SITE
A further 25 acres of land adjacent to the camp sites on the arena side of the airfield has now been laid to grass and all being well this new site will be ready for 2010. This means that more campers will be able to walk to the arena instead of having to catch the shuttle bus from the other side of the airfield.
NEW IMPROVED TOILETS
Twinwood Events is proud to boast that it has extensive, permanent, and well maintained toilets. However during the festival we have to hire in extra loos and these have to date been the plastic portaloo cabins, but not any more. From this year on we are improving the situation by hiring in luxury flush toilet trailers which include wash basins and are so much nicer.
LATEST NEWS ON THE FLYING DISPLAYS
We've just heard from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight that subject to operational conditions, we will have the amazing LANCASTER bomber on Saturday, the beautiful DAKOTA on Sunday and the iconic SPITFIRE and HURRICANE on Monday. In addition to this we have the famous SPITFIRE MH434 displaying on Sunday morning at the Twinwood Memorial Ceremony.
CAMPERS CAN ARRIVE EARLY FOR 2010
For those who are able to come earlier we will allow the pitching up of caravans and tents from mid-day on Thursday 26th August. Please note that we cannot guarantee that the showers and some toilets will be installed by Thursday, but the permanent toilet block will be open. Also the Camp Site Shop will not open until Saturday morning.
THE TWINWOOD MEMORIAL
On the Sunday morning of the Festival at 10.30am in front of the Control Tower, a memorial dedicated to those who served at Twinwood During World War II will be unveiled.
There will be a short service and fittingly a Spitfire will provide an air display over the site.
TIN HAT CLUB LECTURES
To add to the variety of entertainment available at the Festival we are now planning to stage interesting talks at the Tin Hat Club. The plan is to have two lectures per morning on subjects covering aspects of World War II and also life in the 40s.
THE TIN HAT CLUB
We are now installing a full wooden sprung dance floor along with reducing the stage size to improve the dancing experience at Ricardo Gazzini's Jazz Nights.
LATE NIGHT ENTERTAINMENT
Those of you who are already familiar with Paul Claydon's Dance Workshops in the Marquee and the Hangar will be pleased to hear that Paul will now be host and DJ to a 1930's/40's dance in the Hangar on Friday night and therefore in addition to the Nag's Head Bar the Officer's Mess Bar will now also be open on Friday night. This now means that there will be Jazz at the Tin Hat, Hangar Dances, and Marquee Dances on Friday , Saturday, and Sunday night. So plenty of choice for all!
