    Default Evesham Hotair Balloon Fiesta 8-10 june 2012

    ***DRAFT INFO, some info may be wrong, i will update it as soon as more is known***


    Hovercraft participation now cancelled



    Anyone not going to the Big Lakes Extravaganza may be interested in this...

    June 8th (3pm onwards) to 10th

    See the LAST Evesham Hotair Balloon Fiesta (council grant funds cut) the event is open to all, you don't even need to be a club member. bring a hovercraft (or not) chill for the weekend, no pressures

    Unmissable FREE event that mixes Hotair Balloons, Live Music and Hovercraft.

    Plenty to see and do including a Circuit to fly your craft (no rides unless a corporate operator turns up) Our camping area forms the centre of a cordoned off Hover circuit ie we fly around the tents and 'vans

    Mass Hotair balloon assents and a night glow (weather permitting)

    Old cars, campers, caravans Etc. on display

    Fun fair and stalls

    And all for FREE!!!

    The venue is a public park and gets constant foot fall.

    More info/thinking of popping along PM me

    I'm sure that it's not apathy. It's much more likely that no one replied because they can't make it this year.

    We'd have come along again Gaz but like just about everyone else who usually goes to the Evesham Festival, we'll be racing in the European round at the Big Lakes.
    It's unfortunate that the two weekends clash.

    Have a great time.

    Sorry I'm at the Euros too. Why not join us in Nottingham earlier in the week before you go to Evesham? Lots of recreational events on during the Big Lake Festival week both on and off site. - and its not so far from Evesham if your coming up from the West Country.

    I knew if i loaded the gun someone would pull the trigger, sorry for the method but it did get a response!

    Yep, the big lakes event does look like it going to be one not to miss, 2 years ago i would have been there for the whole thing. However life changes and a week under canvas would cause me too much pain and discomfort and i sure cant afford 9 nights in a b&b!

    Thanks for the replys and if any of those who would normally attend evesham are going to miss what will probably the last one, please speak up.

    Events like these help with the social side of hovering as theres no timetable. More time to chill and pick the brains of those a bit longer in the tooth, so to speak, or exchange ideas.

    Carla and I had a great time each year so far.
    Sorry we cant be there for the last extravaganza.

    Hope its a good one for all who support the event.
