Following massive demand for NORFEST tickets for Saturday, 22nd July, RAF Northolt is very pleased to announce that a second batch of tickets for the event will go on sale on 14 April 2017 at 0900hours, available through the ticketing agency See Tickets.

The concept behind NORFEST is for RAF Northolt to host a day of entertainments for all the family and give something back to the local communities which support the Station.· Public tickets, priced at £5, and a limited number of car parking tickets, priced at £3, will be available from See Tickets agency and can be purchased online or by phone.· Blue Badge holders will not require car parking tickets and will be admitted access to dedicated disabled parking.

The original round of tickets sold out in just a few hours and demand for the second batch is expected to be just as high.· Tickets, including parking, will again be on a strictly first-come, first-serve basis, so people are advised to try and purchase their tickets as soon as they can after they go on sale.·

A whole host of entertainments and attractions for the whole family are being planned, including: a variety of children’s entertainments; a food court; a small static display of aircraft; and the central Performance Arena.· The Queen’s Colour Squadron, RAF Regiment; The Band of the RAF Regiment; and ‘The Imps’, the World’s foremost Junior Motorcycle Display team, have already confirmed.· The most recent confirmations include:· BMX stunt bike group Savage Skills, who will both perform and hold a workshop; local Cheerleader group The Babettes; Jay Kumar Bollywood Dancers; and children’s entertainer Epico the Dragon.· A Dakota aircraft from the Royal Air Force’s Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will also perform a flypast during the day.

The Project Officer for the event, Wing Commander Gaz Littlechild, said: “The programme for the day is already packed with things to see and do; there really will be something for all the family.· We’ve also had a huge response in our call for stalls and there will be dozens of local groups, charities and societies represented.· Demand for the tickets has been huge so we’re delighted to be able to put more on sale, though those interested will need to get their order in quickly to avoid disappointment.”

With the focus on local communities, the residents of Ealing, Harrow and Hillingdon are our priority for ticket purchasing and so our advertising has been deliberately targeted locally.· Local residents will need to give their postcode in order to be able to purchase tickets.· The issue with some UB postcodes not being recognised for online purchases has now been rectified and we thank everyone for their patience.

Look out for further updates by following the RAF Northolt Twitter and Facebook pages as they are confirmed, and through local media such as Hillingdon People, local papers and GetWestLondon.
