A quick reminder that in around 12 hours’ time we’ll be opening the museum gate again for day two of the Shackleton Boys 2 book launch event!

We'll have book signers on site a again & a BBMF Spitfire flypast. http://www.newarkairmuseum.org/Shackleton_Boys-2

We've also been encouraged today to see a number of enthusiasts paying us a visit whilst in the area for the Cobra Warrior Exercise, please keep visiting and also keep shopping in the NAM Shop! :yahoo:

The museum has agreed a discounted admission offer that will run throughout September. This has arisen after some discussions this last weekend with aviation enthusiasts and visiting personnel who are participating in Exercise Cobra Warrior.

Here’s a weblink to the Newark Air Museum Autumn 1940s Weekend photo gallery from a wet museum site today; we’re back again first thing on Sunday morning; don’t forget to put your clocks back; approach the site from the A17 direction & there’s a better weather forecast for tomorrow!

I thought that it might be worthwhile sharing the following information from the museum website about Christmas Opening 2019

"Check out when we’re open & when we’re closed this holiday time …

First of all we would like to send out a big Happy Christmas message on behalf of all the volunteers, staff and trustees to all those people who have supported us throughout 2019; whether you are visitors, shoppers or event participants many thanks for your custom, good will and kind comments. It really is appreciated!

As per normal the museum closes at 4pm on Monday, December 23 BUT reopens again at 10am on Friday, December 27. All other days during the post-Christmas holiday period we’ll be open from 10am until 4pm, with last admissions to the museum at 3pm; last museum shop admission 3.40pm. Don’t forget that there’s lots to see inside so don’t let any poor weather forecasts stop you from visiting.

Before Christmas we hope that some of you might call in for those last minute presents, whilst after Christmas you’ll be desperate to spend that money you’ve been given. Don’t forget that we’ll also be closed on Wednesday, January 1, but open again on Thursday, January 2.

Some good news for the early part of 2020 we will be holding our ticket prices at their current rate.

As ever for those of you who can consider the Gift Aided admission, please do so as it makes a huge impact on our income from the tax that we are able to claim back from HMRC.

During the period after Christmas the café will be operating as normal and is an ideal stop off point to warm up and recharge the fuel tanks before continuing to look around the museum.

Christmas Shoppers Beware

If by any chance the weather turns wintery and there are no visitors in the museum after 3pm, the museum may close early to allow the staff to get home during daylight. So as not to be disappointed by the museum being closed, please don’t leave your shopping trip until late afternoon!"


Season's greetings to you all!

If things go according to plan I should be around on Saturday 28th & perhaps Monday 30th - say hello if you manage to make it along on either of those days!
