Yes! We will be at the Telford Balloon Fiesta this year.

🗓️ When is the Telford Balloon Fiesta?

23rd - 25th August, 2024.

Take to the skies for a once-in-a-lifetime hot air balloon ride with up to 30 other hot air balloons from Telford Balloon Fiesta.

Hot air balloons will return to Telford Town Park once more, and Virgin Balloon Flights will be there with our big red balloons, giving you the chance to actually fly once more from this spectacular festival.

If you are booked to fly on a PM flight from the Fiesta, please be aware that the car parks are expected to be very busy, so allow plenty of time to get there in case you need to park further afield.

Passenger Meeting Point: After arrival at the event, please go to the large gate at the far end of the balloon arena, where there will be a Virgin Balloon Flights passenger meeting point sign. Your flight crew will meet you there and take you into the arena.

Note - In case of any changes to your meeting point, please ensure you listen carefully to the full message form the pilot on your Flight Information Line.
