Biggin Hill Airport’s Festival of Flight next month is set to bring a blast from the past as it sets up a 1960s themed village.

The Sixties Village will feature classic cars, original scooters and bicycles and a unique collection of 1960’s memorabilia including the Batmobile, James Bond’s Aston Martin and a stunning replica of Gerry Andersons’ Thunderbird 3 to name a few.

Playing after the Red Arrows team display, a music programme will launch which will include classic bands and tribute acts including Who’s Next.

From 4.15pm to 7pm, other bands playing include The Fliks, The Beatniks, Quiff and the Shades and a dance performance from Bright Sparks.

At the village, visitors can take a trip through the world of film and television supported by lifestyle displays and a film and TV poster gallery mixed in among vintage stalls.

Organiser Colin Hitchins said: “The high profile music entertainment will get under way at 4.15 and will run continuously until 7pm. The quality of the music and performance will make it well worthwhile for visitors to stay on into the early evening” he says.

Admission tickets for the Festival of Flight are available on-line – or from the Festival Box Office, Tel: 01689 300005.
