Hendon Pageant

15 September 2018

Join us for a nostalgic festival celebrating the style and charm of the Hendon Pageants of the 1930s.

Hendon Pageant

11am - 5pm

The pageants drew huge crowds and were a chance for spectators to see aircraft fly, to experience technology they had never seen before and to see the Royal Air Force in action. 

This Centenary year we will be bringing this tradition back to the Hendon Aerodrome, which is now home to the newly transformed Museum. Join us for this family festival that will capture some of the magic of the past Hendon Pageants.

The festival will feature: 

- Live vintage music including Silver Ghost, Auntie Maureen and Joe Thomas
- Lancaster Flypast 
- RAF Museum vehicle display
- community and local interest stands
- RAF Museum Second hand book shop and Magpie Amore vintage stand 
- Swing dancing demonstrations and lessons from Swing Patrol
- Living History areas with re-enactors bringing the 30s to life
- Vintage fairground, including a coconut shy, high striker, swing boats and more
- Face painting
- Giant lawn games

With something for the whole family, this is a day not to be missed! The event is free to enter, just pick up tickets for some of activities in the Museum shop – prices start from 50p!
