Air Tattoo goes halves with neighbours

Where: RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire

When: Friday, July 17, to Sunday, July 19, 2020

Residents living within specific postcodes close to RAF Fairford are again being offered special half-price tickets to the Royal International Air Tattoo as a thank-you from the organisers.

Up to two tickets per household can be purchased for either Friday, July 17 (priced £27 instead of £54) or Sunday, July 19, 2020 (priced £29.50 instead of £59).

The Air Tattoo introduced the discount scheme in recognition of the increased activity in local communities close to the US Air Base as a result of the airshow taking place.

An Air Tattoo spokesman said the scheme proved popular when it was introduced for last summer's airshow and he hoped even more eligible households will take advantage of the offer in 2020.

He added: "We work closely with local councils and various agencies throughout the year to ensure we have in place measures that help minimise the impact of the airshow on local communities. Nevertheless, it is inevitable with an event the size of the Air Tattoo that it will have an effect on people living close the airshow.

"The Air Tattoo already offers free entry to all accompanied under-18s so with additional benefit of purchasing half-price tickets, many local families can enjoy a memorable day out at one of the UK's most exciting summer events

To take advantage of the offer, which runs until May 29, 2020, residents should first view the list of eligible postcodes at the Air Tattoo website, searching for 'local offer' where they'll also find full details of how to purchase.
