  • waddington air show

    hi all
    Has anyone ever done this show before, i havent done an air show before the nearest thing being the totally awful northampton balloon fest last year which was a total disaster with the wrong sort of people unless your items were for under £3 ... a couple of events companys claim the footfall is about 100,000 which surely means as long as the marquee is posistioned right a good amount of people will come through.
    all thoughts welcome

    Air shows certainly attract plenty of people so that is a great start. Of course, you can't always guarantee they are going to spend their money but that is the case at any event but just having the volume of customers should mean you do well. Just be prepared for the marquee to become deserted every time a plane is heard (I do the Shoreham Airshow) providing you are positioned well, they should come back!!

    Good luck if you decide to go ahead.

        Hi Mark. Have you booked a stand? I'm going with craftpeople 2000 but not sure yet where their marquee is, there is one at either end of the field, I'm hoping it's the one near Jane so I can go and have a chin wag

        I have visited before and the marquees get busy if it is raining, It's the most I've ever paid for a stand and has the potential to go either way. It'll either be very good or very bad,

        cheers
