The Midlands Air Festival was a new aviation event in 2018 that took place in the historic grounds of the famous Ragley Hall estate. For its second year in 2019 it moved to Arbury Hall, Nuneaton, Warwickshire but has now moved back to Ragley Hall.

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

On Friday there is usually a unique 'Nightfire' event which features night time aerobatics with aircraft pyrotechnics which are 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. You can also experience the grandeur and history of Ragley Hall itself for a small additional donation.

The second Midlands Air Festival changed its venue to Arbury Hall, Nuneaton, Warwickshire for 2019.

The third Midlands Air Festival was to have taken place on 29-31 May 2020 at Ragley Hall, Alcester, Warwickshire but had to be cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic, however this event did take place in 2021.
