Shuttleworth Statement on Covid-19

Post by LN Strike Eagle »

We have been asked to share the following statement on behalf of The Shuttleworth Collection :

The Shuttleworth Trust is formulating policy based on Government advice. We are keeping up to date with that advice.

We are planning to hold all our air shows and this won’t change unless there is a clear direction from Government.

Some of our staff and volunteers may have been advised to self-isolate at that time, so we will deliver everything we can with the staff and volunteers we have.

Since we have nine shows in the diary, we won’t postpone any shows if Government policy directs a cancellation – we’ll simply run the next show in the series that we are able. (First Sunday and third Saturday May, June, July; August + Flying Proms, First Sunday September, October).

Tickets for any cancelled shows at the start of the season will certainly be transferable to later shows that are able to run. We are just planning our refund policy for virus-related cancellation at the moment and will announce it at the beginning of April, one month before our first show.

The Shuttleworth Trust is very reliant on air show revenue to keep our fabulous collection going, so we hope the air show audience will continue to support us by attending our events.

Keep calm, wash your hands, and carry on!

Shuttleworth are re-opening the Swiss Gardens this weekend, with appropriate measures of course.
Not strictly aviation related but a step in the right direction.
