Once again we are off on our annual pilgrimage to The Shuttleworth collection for flying proms next month We have stayed on site for a couple of shows a year since they have allowed camping on the airfield. Not full facilities , a water tap and chemical disposal so it is one up from wild camping.
Being there before the proms starts gives us time to look round the collection and the Swiss garden.
It's a good weekend even if it rains, we have brollies and waterproofs. The breakfast from the cafe on Sunday morning is a nice end to the weekend.
Not sure we're we will be on site. We booked a bit late so we might by put at the back by the walled garden. Any visitors welcome, the kettle is always on standby.

Sadly camping is full, otherwise we would have joined you. We used to live near Shuttleworth and were regular visitors. Will be watching for next year. Hope you have a great time.

Hi Andy, Camping was booking up,during the first evening air show in May. The Proms tickets are sold by an outside events organiser but the camping is organised by Shuttleworth themselves. I know a couple of people that have booked proms tickets to find the camping is booked up. We used to drive home to the top of Lincolnshire before the camping started. Not fun after a wet proms. The only alternative was a Travel lodge overnight.
I suppose selling Proms tickets is too big for Shuttleworth. Pity the event organisers can't do it all in one booking. We will be booking earlier next year, probly May.
See you there some time. Dave,

Hopefully next year. My abiding memory of Shuttleworth is watching a Tiger Moth performing the falling leaf manouvre. Only possible in zero wind conditions and perfect weather. Think I held my breath all the way down!!!
