On the Friday, Saturday & Sunday evenings of Retro Festival 2020, a selection of hot air balloons (weather permitting) will launch.
For over 35 years members of the 3-4-40 Region BBAC have been flying in the Newbury area. The 3-4-40 Region is a local ballooning club, one of a number of UK organisations affiliated to the British Balloon and Airship Club (www.bbac.org). The Region is named after the three motorways which pass through it and includes North Hampshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire (east of Salisbury Plain) and Oxfordshire.
Unfortunately they are unable to offer hot air balloon flights from Retro Festival. However, if you would like to experience a hot air balloon flight in the UK,they recommend visiting the Balloons Over Britain website (www.balloonsoverbritain.co.uk) or Virgin Balloon Flights (www.virginballoonflights.co.uk).
They are looking forward to a very impressive show of military pre and post war (1900s and 1940s) military displays, including, they hope, the Field Hospital.
