Showground Attractions

Visitors to the Air Tattoo are also treated to a whole host of entertainment on the showground. 

The STEM subjects are brought to life at the Techno Zone®. Inquisitive minds of all ages will love the hands-on activities and fascinating exhibits. Here, inspired young minds share their love of science, technology, engineering, and maths. There's always something new to discover! The Techno Zone® is sponsored by Lockheed Martin and supported by the RAF Charitable Trust. 

The RAF Experience showcases the work and people of the RAF today. You can learn about current operations and the specialised equipment used on missions. You can even chat with operational aircrew and find out how the Regular and Reserve forces work together. For any budding pilot or ground crew, it's worth a visit to the RAF Experience. 

Step back in time at the Vintage Village and experience life in the 1940s. Discover vintage aircraft, cars, and even fashion whilst being entertained by talented performers. You'll be transported to a bygone era and won't want to leave!
