Kenley Airfield Friends Group Heritage Day
September 8, 2019 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM at Portcullis Field
Come and visit the Kenley Revival stall at the Kenley Airfield Friends Group Heritage Day!
After a gap of 3 years the Kenley Airfield Friends Group are back on the
Portcullis field for 2019’s Heritage day so put Sunday September 8th in your diaries. Come and visit our historic Battle of Britain airfield – the event opens at midday and will close around 17.00.
There’ll be a chance to experience what it was like to be a fighter pilot by sitting in the cockpit of a replica Spitfire. Up in the air the Caterham and District Model Aircraft Flying Club will be demonstrating their flying skills with displays of remote controlled aircraft throughout the afternoon.
There’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained with live music, hot food, trade and craft stands, guided history walks, traditional amusements, Pimms tent and a dog show. RAFA will be selling tea and home-made cakes and the bar in the Portcullis Club will be open to everyone. The club is well worth a visit as it is home to the Kenley and Caterham branch of RAFA and is full of memorabilia and interesting artefacts to do with flying and being part of the RAF.
KAFG will be welcoming new members in their tent where you can also renew your existing membership. You can enter their raffle here with the first prize being a trip in a glider generously donated by Surrey Hills Gliding Club who are based on the airfield.
