Tickets for Gold Experience are available to purchase in advance online. You can purchase tickets up until 23:59 the day before the event.
ARE CHILDREN ALLOWED IN THE GOLD EXPERIENCE MARQUEE?
There is no child ticket price for the Gold Experience Marquee and therefore children would be charged full price.

The Family Experience is only available at Duxford Air Festival and Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show.

No. Once you have booked your tickets online you will be sent an e-confirmation. Please collect your Gold Experience badges on the day from the Gold Experience marquee.
