In 2024 we would also love to hear from living history groups, vintage car owners and community groups who would like to be part of our showground entertainment.
Living history groups
Living history groups help us to tell the personal story of what it was like to experience and serve during the First and Second World Wars.
Vintage cars - and vintage entertainment - are always welcomed at Duxford Air Shows.
Duxford Air Shows are popular with people of all ages, including families. If you are an educational outreach project or children's entertainment brand you can get involved.
Live music and dance are a core ingredient for a great air show atmosphere. From big band sounds to vintage DJs, new acts to classic rock and roll, golden oldies to current playlists, lindy hoppers to ballroom dancers - and everything in between! We welcome enquiries and applications from performers to join the entertainment line-up at Duxford Air Shows.
