Duxford Battle of Britain Proms

We are working hard to put in place social distancing protection for visitors, staff and volunteers at our 80th anniversary Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show commemorations, including strictly limiting the amount of tickets on sale. And so, our bumper commemoration will now include an additional day to remember on Friday 18 September – Duxford Battle of Britain Proms. Join us for a day filled with entertainment and showcase flying, climaxing in the special evening Proms, fireworks and sunset flypasts. A date to remember, step back in time to the perfect Great British Summer evening.
