Premium Member Benefits

IWM Premium members enjoy exclusive ticket discounts to our major events, including the new 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 now includes 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. 

Joining the line-up are the The D-Day Darlings, bringing the true spirit of the wartime era alive, and The FlyBoys, fusing Frank Sinatra with Bruno Mars, Judy Garland with Ricky Martin. Tickets are on sale now. Book before 12 noon on Friday 10 July and enter our special Prize Draw to win a flight in a Spitfire, thanks to Aerial Collective. T&Cs apply.
