Events Calendar

The rally will start on Saturday 31st July 2010 and end on Sunday 8th August. We are planning a series of events for the week, including the popular "Dwile Flonking", as well as a Norfolk Night with traditional morris dancing, and a perfomance by the South Norfolk Youth Swingband.

The Vintage Model Gliders official displays are being held over the first weekend, and the Powered model displays over the second weekend. Also model flying will take place every evening after full size flying is over.

During the Rally Ken Wallis will pay us a flying visit in one of his Autogyros, and you will get the opportunity to get up close to one of his fine machines.
