A full programme of entertainment will run throughout the day with lots of activities for the whole family including craft activities and circus skills for all ages to get involved in.

The event village will further showcase local artisan traders and visitors will be able to tuck into some street food and experience local ales from the Hopback Brewery.

Chief executive of the museum, Lucy Johnson, said: “Wallop Wheels and Wings is the Army Flying Museum’s main fundraising event and a chance to showcase some of the best vintage aircraft, cars and motorbikes on the beautiful site of Middle Wallop airfield. The Museum is an independent charity and relies on fundraising activities to support the work we do in preserving the history of Army aviation, so the proceeds from this event are vitally important. But it’s also a brilliant day out for the whole family and we hope you can join us!”

Tickets for the event can be booked via the museum website at armyflying.com/what-s-on/events/wallop-wheels-and-wings-2022/

Visitors who add gift aid with their ticket will receive a free annual pass for the Museum in return.
