Yealands Classic Fighters places heritage aviation on display in an action-packed three-day Easter weekend, Friday 2nd – Sunday 4th April 2021, amid the magnificent scenery and vineyards of Marlborough during grape harvest time.
Friday is the official practice day and is treated as a normal show day with gates opening to the public at 8am. Gates will open again from 3.30pm for ticket holders to the Friday night Marlborough Lines Twilight Extreme show, with sunset flying, entertainment and a fireworks spectacular running from 4pm – 7pm. The Twilight show is very popular with families.
The main show days are Saturday and Sunday. Gates open to the public at 8am, with the show programme running from 10am – 4pm.
Food Stalls must be operating over all three days of the show, however staying open for the Friday night Marlborough Lines Twilight Extreme show (4pm – 7pm) is optional. You will need lighting at your site if you wish to trade over this time.
Food Stall sites are strictly limited and in high demand, so please get your application in early to avoid disappointment. Yealands Classic Fighters prides itself on offering a diverse variety of food styles in the Food Court area, so acceptance may not be guaranteed. If your application is successful, an invoice for 50% deposit will be issued for immediate payment to secure your site.
Payment in full is required no later than 12th February 2021, or your site may be cancelled.
Food Stall operators are supplied with 3x Three-Day Trade passes for staff and 1x Trade Vehicle pass to the Trade Exhibitor carpark. Additional passes for staff can be ordered on your application form or prior to the show (please contact Jo at the office). Additional staff vehicles must park in the public car parking areas.
Please note: It is up to all Food Stall operators to ensure all staff have their appropriate passes prior to the show. These will be checked at the Trade Gate, where E-tickets will be exchanged for lanyard passes. It is recommended that this is exchange is made on Thursday when you set up. Absolutely NO trade staff will be permitted on the airfield without a pass.
Food Stall site prices are for the bare site only. Continental Event Hire supply all hire equipment to the show. If you require hire equipment, please select from the options on the separate application form.
Power is available to your site at an additional cost. If a power connection is required to your site, please provide all information requested on the application form.
In 2021 we will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary, so you are welcome to draw on any of our past themes for inspiration. The best themed site will win a complimentary site to the 2023 show!
