Shuttleworth Collection announce dates and themes for 2022 airshow season

The Shuttleworth Collection has announced ten dates and themes for their 2022 airshow season, with the popular Fly Navy theme and Flying Proms both due to make a return. The popular Military Airshow theme will be moving to a Saturday evening slot.

As usual, shows will start in early May with the Season Premiere and continue roughly bi-weekly until early October’s Race Day event. Four of the ten shows will be evening events, taking place on Saturdays, while the rest will take place on Sunday afternoons.

Tickets are on sale now from the Collection’s website. Tickets cost £29 for Sunday events and £25 for most Saturday events. The Flying Proms, which combines flying displays with live music, costs £42.

There is no indication that the Collection are returning to their drive-in style of event for most shows, which was used throughout 2020 and the first half of 2021. However, they have scheduled a singular drive-in evening show in July, marking the Collection’s 90th anniversary. In addition to standard ticket prices, a parking space must be purchased for each vehicle, costing £7 for regular vehicles.

  • Sunday 1st May: Shuttleworth Season Premiere Airshow
  • Saturday 14th May: Evening of Espionage Airshow
  • Sunday 5th June: Jubilee Flying Circus
