Hangar Dance 2016

It’s time to dance again! 2016 brings another edition of our successful charitable ball: as usual the impeccable Jonathan Wyatt Big Band will delight our evening together playing the most popular tunes from the ‘40s, there will be a bar and food available on site and our warbirds will be parked outside for all visitors to see. Don’t forget to wear your best period attire and come join us for our famous evening of fun together!

As usual, all the proceedings will go to local charities.

The event will take place in our hangar at Topcroft (NR35 2BG), you can find more details and information on tickets in the poster below.
Don’t leave your booking to the last minute! Tickets are limited and to avoid disappointment make sure you get your tickets in advance.
We look forward to seeing you on the dance floor!

Our open days

This year we have focussed our attention on Open Days: these events always prove very successful and are an opportunity to have a closer look at our aircraft.

We have listened to your suggestions, and so we have set up 6 Open Days for you all to come and get a chance to meet us and all the wonderful people here at Hardwick that make all this possible, so make sure you come see us!

490th Bomber Group Memorial

This project is particularly dear to us, as the 490th BG was based at the local Eye airfield and operated starting from June 1944 until the end of WW2.
We offered help and support to the local association in order to set up a local memorial, and thanks to the wonderful support offered by many, this became a reality on May 29th, 2016.
For more photos and information on this wonderful initiative and the glorious history of the 490th BG you can visit the website
