MPORTANT INFORMATION – UPDATED FRIDAY 30TH AUGUST
It is with the greatest regret that we have had to cancel the EVENING flights on Saturday 31st August and Sunday 1st September. The wind speed is high and outside of flyable limits for balloons. Safety of both passengers and spectators is paramount at public events.
We understand this is disappointing for everyone that was planning to attend, as it is for the organisers, sponsors, pilots, passengers and volunteers who have worked so hard to make the event happen.
Saturday mornings flight will go ahead, with balloons leaving the green promptly at 6AM. We are currently assessing the weather on Sunday morning and will advise later in this post.
To reiterate, there will be nothing happening on the green on either Saturday or Sunday late afternoon/evening.
Please share this post far and wide so people do not make a wasted journey.
Thank you all for your support and we hope to see you again next year.
