This August bank holiday more than 20,000 people are expected to flock to the ‘Wings & Wheels’ festival at Dunsfold Park in Surrey. The two day event will showcase some of the finest civil and military aircraft displays in the UK, as well as motoring displays and some pretty speedy race cars. Virgin Balloon Flights will be there getting in on the action too!
Pilot Spencer Craze who flies for Virgin Balloon Flights in the south east said “Balloon rides in Surrey are fantastic as it has a tremendous amount of beautiful woodland to fly over, yet it’s really close to London, so you can sometimes have great views of the city. Being involved in Wings & Wheels will be great, I imagine the balloon will get a lot of attention.”
The father-of-two will be at the Surrey attraction offering discounted flights to festival goers and launching his big red Virgin balloon from the showground early morning and early evening on both Sunday 29th and Monday 30th.
As well as taking to the skies with Virgin, the exciting aviation and motoring show are proud to announce that the famous Red Arrows will be joining the ‘air teams’ in the four hour display on both days too. As if that wasn’t enough there will be family activities including a fairground, over 50 stalls, arts and crafts, food and drink and many demonstrations and trials.
What’s more, all proceeds from Wings & Wheels will go to Dunsfold Park’s nominated charities which include; Brooklands Museum Trust, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance, Cranleigh Village Hospital Trust and Help for Heroes.
