Tickets on Sale for VRT Christmas Enthusiasts’ Event & Buffet - Saturday 2 December 2017

Saturday, 2 December, 2017 - 12:00

XL426 outside in the snow!Tickets are now on sale for our 2017 Christmas Enthusiast’s Event & Buffet at Hawkwell Village Hall, Essex SS5 4EH on the afternoon of Saturday 2 December.

We are pleased to welcome as our guest speaker this year Kevin ‘Taff’ Stone, chief engineer with the Vulcan to the Sky Trust (VTTS). ‘Taff’ joined VTTS at the start of XH558’s restoration to flight and was with the team when XH558 made her first post-restoration flight in October 2007 through to her retirement from flying at the end of 2015.

‘Taff’ continues to be retained by VTTS as a consultant by VTTS, overseeing engine runs and XH558’s maintenance programme at Doncaster Robin Hood Airport (formerly RAF Finningley). He will be telling us about the restoration to flight programme work and the engineering work needed to keep XH558 in the air during her eight seasons of display flying.

Entry is by ticket only; there will be no ‘on the door’ sales. Tickets are priced at £21.00 for adults and £16.00 for under-16s. The price includes a buffet lunch plus dessert, tea and coffee.

VRT Members can purchase up to four tickets for themselves and their guests at the special discounted rate of £18.00 for adults and £13.00 for under-16s.

Tickets can be ordered at here (booking fee applies). All ticket applications must be received by 28 November. Please don’t delay sending your booking as tickets are limited and our Christmas event often sells-out.

There will be a licensed pay bar and our Vulcan souvenir stall will be in attendance for all your Christmas gift needs. We will also be offering a number of interesting items for sale by auction, so please bring your wallets, purses and credit cards with you!

Doors open at 12.00 and the buffet lunch will begin at 1.00 p.m. We expect the event to finish no later than 5.00pm.
