Midlands Air Festival History
This is a spectacular new aviation event for the Midlands, in 2018, and features a variety of displaying aircraft from World War 1, World War 2, Classic jets, and Aerobatic display teams. This exciting show will take place in the historic grounds of the famous Ragley Hall estate. Which is close to Alcester in Warwickshire.

On Friday there is a unique Nightfire event which features night time aerobatics with aircraft pyrotechnics and lit by computer controlled lighting systems. This is followed by a mass balloon nightglow and flames choreographed and set to music, and ends with a stunning big sky firework finale.

On the ground there is an array of catering, exhibitors and attractions, including Battlefield South's Commando laser shooting experience. You can also experience the grandeur and history of Ragley Hall itself for a small additional donation.

The Midlands Air Festival changed its venue to Arbury Hall, Nuneaton, Warwickshire in 2019. Building on the success of the Midlands Air Festival in 2018, this spectacular aviation event will once again consist of Friday Nightfire, Weekend Air Displays and Hot Air Balloon Launches! Plus there will be great trade stands, childrens rides and even more entertainment!
