The Battle of Britain is as important in the history of this country as Drake defeating the Spanish Armada, Nelson at Trafalgar or Wellington at Waterloo, the difference is no one man is credited for winning the Battle of Britain that honour goes to "The Few"
On the 17th August a historic corner of Biggin Hill airport will once again hear the sound of merlin engines roaring into life to scramble into the sky. This unique event will tell the story of those dark day's of 1940 using music, video, narration, reenactors, special effects, actors and singers as we salute "The Few"
With over four and a half hours of top quality entertainment including a Battle of Britain scramble and aerial display the event will bring alive the summer of 1940 on the historic site from which "The Few" fought.
Gates Open at 3pm
Pre event entertainment from 5pm
