Duxford Battle of Britain 80th Anniversary Special Weekend


To commemorate the Battle of Britain and remember the men, women and aircraft involved in the summer of 1940, IWM Duxford are hosting a special three-day event from Friday 18th September. This event has been thoughtfully extended over three days to allow as many visitors as possible whilst ensuring social distancing.

With The Yard @ Pringle Farm located so close to the Alconbury air base, we have always shown an interest in our aerospace roots. Whilst Duxford – only 31 miles away from Pringle Farm – is home to a number of fascinating events, this weekend is a key date in their diary and accompanied by thrilling shows for visitors.

With the event extended to three days, there has never been a better time to take a break and experience the weekend in luxury at Pringle Farm. With a variety of fully equipped barns available, you can make your own rules for the weekend and enjoy a luxurious stay at your leisure. Also, take advantage of our ‘Half Price Sundays’ deal and enter SUMMER50 at our checkout for 50% off the Sunday price when booking a Friday –  Monday stay, so you don’t miss a second of the action at Duxford.

The new Duxford Battle of Britain Proms on Friday 18 September will start with Air Show commemorations, filled with flying and entertainment, climaxing with sunset flypasts and an evening filled with music. Following on Saturday and Sunday will be the spectacular Spitfire flypast, accompanied by entertainment from bands, dancing and living history groups. You are also able to get up close to the historic aircraft with the ‘Flightline Experience’.
