Take to the skies with a Northampton hot air balloon ride from the town's annual festival of fun and flight.
Held at The Racecourse in the centre of the town, Northampton Town Festival returns this July and Virgin Balloon Flights is providing passenger flights from the event.
The three-day event, which is free to attend, will take place from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd July and offers a fun-filled weekend for all the family, with hot air balloons, a giant funfair, arena entertainment, live music and more.
This year our big red passenger balloon is scheduled to fly on the Sunday only, with one flight in the morning and another in the evening.
Like all our flights, a ride in our big red balloon from Northampton Town Festival must be booked in advance.
If you already have a valid flight voucher, you can book online to fly from the festival today.
If you do not have a flight voucher already and want to experience the Northampton skies like never before, you can see our range of options before buying online here or call our team on 01952 212750.
Only passengers booked onto a flight will be allowed in the balloon arena. All passengers must wait at the security control until they are collected by our balloon crew for their flight. No family or friends of passengers are allowed to enter the balloon arena at any time.
Virgin Balloon Flights passengers have free entry to the event and will need to show their flight booking confirmation documents to security on entry. Any friends or family who are not booked onto a flight will need to pay the entry fee.
Please keep in mind that for evening flights, parking for the event will be very busy so do ensure you arrive in plenty of time, just in case you do need to park further away than expected.
