RAF and American airpower is coming to Rugby4Heroes 2017!

Dust off your platform heeled shoes and your flower power shirts, get some Rolling Stones vinyl on the turntable, power up those afro hairstyles and get ready for the return of the Swinging 60s at Rugby4Heroes!

The Americans are coming to town.

This year we are proud to welcome the visit of the Bell Griffin helicopter operated by the Royal Air Force and based on the Vietnam War era Huey. And not only that, we have a vintage Hughes OH-6 Cayuse helicopter coming too – all the way from the rice fields of Vietnam!

Both helicopters will fly in on Sunday for the mini Festival, and also the Griffin will come in on Saturday as well.

Alongside Fly-bys by the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Hurricane fighter and Lancaster Bomber it promises to be an amazing weekend of aviation, rugby, live music, great food and great beer!

Have you got your tickets yet? Only £10 plus Vat for Saturday and £5 plus Vat for Sunday if you pay on the gate – and cheaper in advance.
