Pillows & Pilots

Following on from last year’s fun we will be hosting, in March 2020, Pillows and Pilots, so grab your sleeping bag and get set for an evening of fun. These sleepovers are for organised groups of children aged 7 – 15. So if you’re part of a scout, brownie or cadet group this is perfect for you!

There will be activities that take place in Hangar 1, followed by a film, before settling down for the night surrounded by aircraft and artefacts in our ‘RAF Stories: The First 100 years’ exhibition.

Snacks will be served in the evening and a light breakfast in the morning. For early risers, there will be a chance to go on some fascinating tours in our other galleries and early bird access to the Museum Shop.

Sleepovers at the RAF Museum cost £35.00 per child and £10.00 per adult. A minimum ratio of 1 adult for 8 children applies (adults over this ratio will be charged at full price, £35.00) and groups must be minimum of 16 children and 2 adults. 

There is also the option to purchase a Pillow & Pilots woven badge (available at the time of booking for £1.50 per badge)

We are holding three sleepovers in 2020 on the following dates:

- Saturday 7 March - SOLD OUT

- Saturday 4 April - CANCELLED

- Saturday 2 May - CANCELLED

Both March and April sleepovers we are running in 2020 are mixed, they are suitable for organised groups including brownies, guides, scouts, cadets, boys and girls brigade. You will need to make sure your group is on site for check-in at 6.30pm.
