In the air
Over 4 hours of flying action, from WW1 biplanes though WW2 warbirds such as the Spitfire and Lancaster to modern extreme aerobatics in the Extra 300 - something for every taste, from the cream of the UK's aviators - including world champion aerobatic pilots! We'll also have a number of aircraft on static display including fabulous Hawker Fury and Hurricane restorations from the Cambridge Bomber and Fighter Society.
On the road
More than 300 classic, vintage and ex-military vehicles from the earliest days of the internal combustion engine, showing off the amazing variety of engineering and design skill that has gone into getting us from A to B over the last century or so.
On the ground
Fun fair, over 70 trade stands and a craft fair selling children's knitwear, pottery, jewellery and brooches, tapestry, painted gifts, cards, hand-made toys, quilt & needle-work, liquorice and sweets, plants, etc. Get your jive on to big band music with the Blitz Dancers! Watch out for the arrival of a pair of enormous steam-powered traction engines.
Licensed bar, fish and chips, coffee, ice cream, BBQ, burgers, hog roast, sweets, donuts... you won't go hungry or thirsty at Little Gransden! Or take it easy and let our VIP team take the strain of providing you with breakfast, dinner and drinks at your table while you watch the show in comfort.
About The Show
First put on in 1992 with just a handful of cars and single flying act, the show has gone from strength to strength over the years, with show gradually increasing to its current size - with over 300 vehicle exhibitors and a flying display lasting more than 4 hours plus numerous other ground-based attractions. The show is put on by an entirely unpaid volunteer team in aid of the BBC's Children in Need Appeal and various local children's charities and deserving organisations and to date we have raised in the region of £320,000 for these causes.
Meet the Team
Show Director is David Poile MBE and the show committee consists of Mark Jefferies, John Jefferies, Damien Burke, Marion Quemby, John Swain and Chaz Wakeham, building upon the experience of our dear friends Adrian Hamilton and Doug Sewell, no longer with us but forever part of the team.
The flying display will run from approximately 13:00 to 17:15 with a break for a brief memorial service. The 2018 display line-up is now being put together - much more to come!
