Grandstand Improvements!

Published: 10 Nov 2016

Each year we ask for feedback about the Air Tattoo through our online visitor survey, comment cards and by talking to our customers at the event. We use this information to help shape our planning for the next show.

So, one of the main areas of comment from the 2016 show were the Grandstands in both the Viewing Village and the Friends of the Royal International Air Tattoo (FRIAT) Enclosure. We found that the Grandstand structures we had in 2015 were much preferred for a whole manner of reasons.

We are delighted to confirm we have now awarded the contract to the supplier that provided our Grandstands in 2015 so that we keep our customers happy!  

With regard to tickets for the Air Tattoo on 14-16 July 2017, we have already sold twice as many as at the same point last year. So, if you haven't yet done so please take a look at our ticket options HERE.
