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.

Nightfire event (Friday 18th May 2018):
On Friday there will be a unique 'Nightfire' event which features night time aerobatics aircraft displaying with 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.

Hot Air Balloons:
Over the weekend there is expected to be up to 50 classic rainbow coloured round balloons from all over the UK, plus some exciting and rare special shapes.

The balloons early in the morning and in the evening when weather conditions are at their best. Gates will open at 05.00 and if the weather is OK balloons could start to take off from around 06.00. The plan is to fly them again in the evening after the air display is finished, again subject to the weather. If they cant fly then the organisers will do their best to put on a tethered display or burner display to allow better photographic opportunities.

On the ground:
There will be an array of catering, exhibitors and attractions, including Battlefield South's Commando laser shooting experience which will be provided free of charge and on a first come first served basis.

You will also be able to experience the grandeur and history of Ragley Hall itself for a small additional donation.
