Season Premier 21

Post by Mooshie1956 »

A quick question, both myself and son in law are thinking of going to this, do we book 1 car space or 2. As it stands we cannot travel together officially. So what do we do ?. It seems such a shame to book a space that could be used by others, just because we cannot travel in the same car.

As things stand you can't travel at all at the moment. You can't ask a question like this basing it on what is happening now, because no one can answer it and no one knows what the restrictions will be when the show happens, if it happens.

I attended 2 great shows at Old Warden last year and based on my experience there if you are taking 2 cars you will need 2 spaces. They were both extremely well organised and well worth attending. To the best of my knowledge there were no health repercussions from eiither air show. Whilst the other respondent is quite correct no one knows what the situation will be in May I`m an optimist and have booked my ticket for this event and a couple of others. Travelling from Cornwall I have also booked accommodation as I do not want to miss an opportunity of a show at Old Warden. The collection needs all the help it can get at the momnent and I am happy to do my small bit towards that.

I've got a ticket for this but I'm scratching my head over yesterday's roadmap announcement which precludes outdoor events at scale until May 17th at the earliest. Would the season premier count in the same way as a drive-in cinema though because those are allowed from April 12th?

That's pretty much how the early ones were run last year, you had to stay within your 5m x 5m car space except for visiting the toilets or food vendors.

I don't see any reason why the May shows could not go ahead on that basis again.

Yesterdays roadmap, though very welcome, gives me a problem with this air show. It`s a five and a half hour journey each way for me so unless things change and hotels are allowed to open earlier than stated at the moment, I will not be able to attend. I`m hoping Boris will eventually be able to amends his roadmap and allow hotels to open before 17th. May. Either way I hope it will be a good show.

Air BnB or a holiday cottage for a couple of nights somewhere is another option. That's what my parents are doing when they come down at the end of April for a couple of nights. Not for an airshow though!

Thank you 5944 I`ll see what might be available if the roadmap isn`t amended in the next couple of weeks.
