Pillows and Pilots London
02 July - 03 July 2022
Don’t miss the chance to spend a night at the Museum!
Pillows and Pilots is back and better than before! 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 3,4 and 5, including a science show and craft activities. There will be a film screening outside on our airfield – silent cinema style – so you can munch your evening snacks and watch our film. After all this you will settle down for the night surrounded by aircraft in either H6 or H1.
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 get early bird access to the Museum Shop.
Sleepovers at the RAF Museum cost £36.00 per child and £12.00 per adult. A minimum ratio of 1 adult for 8 children applies (adults over this ratio will be charged at full price, £36.00) and groups must be a 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 will be holding our sleepover on Saturday 2 July this year. You will need to make sure your group is on site for check-in at 6.00pm. The fun ends the next morning at 9.00am when parents can collect and groups can sign out.
All our sleepovers in London are mixed, they are suitable for organised groups including brownies, guides, scouts, cadets, boys and girl’s brigade. Once you’ve booked we recommend group leaders come for a site visit before the event. Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org to book this in with the events team.
Please note, full payment for all participants will be needed at time of booking. We are not able to take deposits.
Health and Safety
The health and wellbeing of all our pillows and pilots ticket holders is important to the RAF Museum. To support us in this, we ask all Groups to send us a risk assessment, and information about the group in advance of the visit via an online form. More information will be sent to the lead booker after they purchase tickets.
All staff and volunteers working at the Pillows and Pilots Sleepover will be wearing facemasks. We will also have a number of sanitisation points across the Hangars that you will be able to use throughout the evening and morning. Any adult leaders are more than welcome to wear facemasks if they wish too. In addition, we would also strongly advise that any member of your group that have feel unwell through illness, colds or COVID take very careful consideration as to whether or not they should attend the event.
