Our roving film crews will be creating movie magic across our historic airfield, if you spot them they may need another extra, or ask you to say a few lines from an iconic Duxford movie scene.

Get your hands on cameras and projectors used by cinemas of a by-gone age and see footage from Imperial War Museum’s archive of the actual Battle of Britain from that summer in 1940.
