NEW: Family Enclosure

Following visitor feedback asking for a dedicated family-friendly area to relax with children we have introduced an enclosure offering a fun environment for parents and children to enjoy the Air Tattoo. Open Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 July, located on the crowd line, at the Western end of the showground, in our Green Zone.

This crowdline location enclosure is an ideal place to watch the flying display and also gives your kids the chance to get involved in some fun activities. It is a perfect base from which to explore the whole Air Tattoo showground. 

The large grassed area, with seating, includes a free Circus Skills workshop, slackline and outdoor games (giant Connect Four, Tic Tac Toe and Jenga plus a ring toss and corn hole toss). A tented structure will provide a covered space with free face painting and other children's activities including a 'colouring-in' station.

Anyone with a family enclosure wristband gets free access to the Silent Disco - located in our already popular Activity Zone - adjacent to the enclosure which offers a variety of other activities for children of all ages. There will be a refundable deposit required for headphones.

You can take advantage of the space and create your own picnic spot for the family in this relaxed environment, right on the crowd line.

  • Circus skills workshop
  • Outdoor games (giant Connect Four, Tic Tac Toe, Jenga, ring toss and corn hole toss)

For Adults
The enclosure will also feature comforts like private toilets, Wi-Fi, unreserved garden seating, as well as paid catering and bar options. Bring your own picnic blanket and settle down where ever you like.

With so much to amaze parents and inspire children at the Air Tattoo, the Family Enclosure could be your perfect upgrade.

This enclosure is aimed at families with children. For adults looking for an enclosure at a similar price, we recommend our Viewing Village.
