PRESS RELEASE-2010 Abingdon Air & Country Charity Show



START



Planning is now under way for the 2010 Abingdon Air & Country Charity Show on Sunday May 2nd at Abingdon airfield,Dalton Barracks,Abingdon,Oxon.This year's show will be the 11th event organised by the all-volunteer committee and will once again support the Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust.The show opens at 10.00 am and runs until 5.00pm,although it is hoped that some performers will provide musical entertainment beyond this time to allow people to stay a little longer and avoid the exit queues.



In this the 70th Anniversary year of thew Battle of Britain,we are hoping for a full display from the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight including Spitfire,Hurricane and Lancaster.Two of last year's highlights will,subject to serviceability, be making a welcome return..the Swift glider display and the classic de Havilland Vampire jet.Dominating the static aircraft park will,hopefully, be another of last year's highlights...the RAF's gigantic C-17 Globemaster III transport from Brize Norton.Overseas aircraft participation is also being sought,to give us a little international flavour and pleasure flights will be available in a 1940s vintage de Havilland Dove airliner.



Among the non-aviation attractions will be over 400 MG cars(a marque synonymous with the Abingdon area) taking part in an all-points run in to the airfield,together with other historic vehicles,commercial and ex-military,tractors, and at the opposite end of the spectrum a Williams F1 Grand Prix show car.Live music will once again be providied by Fiona Harrison performing her popular medley of 1940s numbers,while further nostalgia will be served-up by several re-enactment groups.



Younger members of the family will also find plenty to keep them amused with a Mobile Farmyard,Dr WHO's DALEKS,Bouncey Castle,paint-balling etc while arena events lined up include a parade of Harley Davidson motor-cycles and an excellent sheep-dog demonstration with a difference...as well as sheep,the dogs will be working with geese.



Advance tickets will be available to order from our web-site(www.abingdonfayre.com) from February 1st and from selected local outlets soon after.Prices in advance are;-

Adult £10

OAP £6

Chld(5-15yrs) £5

Family £27



Car-parking is FREE and there will be plenty of catering outlets and toilet facilities.

Members of the public can get further information by continually checking the web-site or by telephoning 01235 529142
