VE Day Celebration - CANCELLED


For those of you that have tickets for the VE Day event we will be honouring your tickets on the 31st October Fireworks event instead.

Join us to celebrate 75 years since VE Day and the end of the European conflict in the Second World War.

We'll be celebrating in a big way with the aircraft based here at East Kirkby, reenactor lectures and a huge fireworks display at dusk.  We have one of the County's biggest firework displays using one of the Countries best firework companies.

The event will see the culmination of many years experience here at the Centre giving us the best dusk fireworks display we have ever had, not only will you be able to see the fireworks you will also be able to feel their power as they explode and cascade in the skies over this very historic location marking 75 years since the end of the Second World War.

This year there will be even more space for our visitors and even better views for the fireworks as we enhance your experience. 

This is possibly our best value event as you can join us for 11 hours experiencing the Lancaster and Mosquito taxy runs at day and sunset, enjoy a hog roast, play with glowstick and most importantly build memories for years to come with the biggest firework display at the Centre.
