In addition to Motorfest, visitors can browse a great range of pop-up stalls selling food, drink and retail products.

Duxford Aviation Society Military Transport section will be hosting tank rides, and Classic Wings are offering unique flying experiences where participants can fly ‘Wing to Wing’ with a Spitfire. There will be an additional cost for these two activities.

You can also experience personal memories of Duxford’s Battle of Britain in DX17, a major site-specific contemporary art installation by BAFTA Award-winning artist Nick Ryan commemorating 100 years of Duxford’s history and stories.

DX17 is a dramatic, large-scale immersive sound sculpture, roughly the same size as a Spitfire.

Presented in a dramatic darkened space, it takes visitors on a spectacular and tactile journey as they transfer light into sound to hear more than 100 voices and memories from Duxford’s past and present.

Families can also enjoy the wonders of Duxford, including the inspiring exhibitions, and may see thrilling aircraft taking off from the historic airfield.

Entry to the MotorFest display is included within the admission price to IWM Duxford, offering families an entertaining way to enjoy Bank Holiday Sunday.
