Plans are well underway for a weekend to remember with music, fun activities, and planes to commemorate 75 years since the D-Day landings.

HMS Daedalus was the busiest allied airfield in the UK on D-Day with more than 400 missions flown over Normandy so it will be a very special place from which to commemorate this important event.

Visitors can expect a static aircraft display, flying aircraft, a commemorative plaque unveiling,  children's activities, fun fair rides, stage and arena performances, food stalls, gift and community stalls, vintage cars and more!

We are very excited to announce some high-flying headline acts for the weekend including The Great War Display Team and the Round Canopy Display Team!

Keep an eye on social media for further announcements.

Tickets can be purchased from Ferneham Hall either in person at the box office, by phone or online. Tickets booked online incur a £1.25 booking fee.

Tickets can also be purchased in person from the Control Tower's main reception at Solent Airport, Daedalus.

The address is Solent Airport, Daedalus Drive, Lee-on-the-Solent, Hampshire. PO13 9YA

Opening hours are 9am-6pm, Monday-Sunday.
