Tiverton Balloon Festival

Friday, 11th July 2014 at 4pm - 10pm Sunday, 13th July

Location: Tiverton, Devon

This event is in the past.

Tiverton (westcountry) Balloon Festival

Just off the M5 towards Exeter.

BUHABS is attending the festival this year for the weekend with flying slots from Friday evening to Sunday evening. BUHABS traditionally heads down for the whole weekend and camp overnight, so we get in as much flying as possible.

Sign up for either the whole weekend (bit of camping) or selected flights. Tiverton isn't that far from Bristol so it's easy to drive down or get the train. We can give you a lift to/from Bristol in the van if you intend to come for the weekend.

The festival offers loads of other activities during the day to the public and balloonists so if you come for the whole duration then you can attend these too.

Last year we had a really great time with six people camping. If you are available for the whole weekend then don't miss out on this amazing local fiesta!

See: http://www.tivertonballoonfestival.co.uk/ for more info.

There is a small cost of entry which will be slipt between those that attend.

If you're keen to come along then fill in your details below and let us know how much of it you can make.
