Vintage Village

For visitors, the Vintage Village at the Air Tattoo is like taking a step back in time to revel in the extravaganza of nostalgic experiences.

This year Daisy's Vintage Tearoom will be offering delicious tea and cake, the Military Vehicle Trust will be accompanied by re-enactors to bring the First and Second World War life, to life! Boscombe Down Aviation Collection will be showing off a number of aircraft cockpits from the RAF's 100 year past, allowing you to see and even sit inside icons like the Hawker Hunter.

Friday will see Winston Churchill make an appearance - so keep your eyes peeled and catch one of his infamous speeches. You can also see performances on the bandstand from the Bluebird Belles (Friday, pictured), Puttin' on the Blitz (Saturday) and D-Day Darlings (Sunday). 


Inside the themed marquee will be packed a programme of wonderful entertainment, including professional singers, dancing, and DJ. The style is, of course, a mix of wartime favourites and tunes from a bygone era, spiced with some foot stomping jumping and jiving. 

Anderson Shelters

Travel back in time to experience what life was like during the Blitz in these genuine WW2 Anderson shelters. Once you step inside you'll be transported back to the 1940s, where a re-enactor will answer all your questions on this fascinating time period.
