@RAFNortholt excited to announce we will open our doors for NORFEST on 22 July 2017.

Historic RAF Northolt where Polish pilots helped Britain in the war effort announces open day festival

06:00, 22 JAN 2017

RAF Northolt is one of Hillingdon's most significant landmarks and has a rich and colourful history in the borough.

While not everyone in the area is ecstatic about the presence of a working RAF base near their home, the airfield has helped defined the area since it became operational in 1915.

The base will now be welcoming the public onto its runways for another of its famous open days, called NORFEST, taking place on Saturday July 22.

RAF Northolt last held an event similar to this in 2015 to mark 100 years since it opened, and it was attended by 11,000 keen guests.

Project officer for the event, Wing Commander Gaz Littlechild, said: “The thought behind the day is for the station to host an entertaining day out for the whole family and give something back to everyone who supports us at RAF Northolt; families, local communities, local councils, businesses and societies.

“We are working with the local councils and civil agencies that are part of the fabric of our communities and that make Ealing, Harrow and Hillingdon boroughs such exciting and includes places to live and work.”

There will be a whole range of family entertainment, food courts, and static aircraft displays.

Stands and ground displays will also be set up, including the 32 (The Royal) Squadron's aircraft, the Queen's Colour Squadron, Royal Air Force Bands and working dog teams.

Tickets are expected to go on sale next month, with
expected to be made available.
