This year, visitors to the RAF Museum Midlands can expect to see some brand-new additions to the events calendar including a fun packed STEM week during February half term, an out of this world Jet and Space Week in October, and the chance to enrol in Elf Cadet Training next Christmas.

The busy schedule caters to the Museum’s wide and diverse audience, offering something new for repeat visitors, and for those visiting the Museum for the first time in 2023.

RAF Museum Midlands Public Events Manager, Amy Bertaut said:

‘We’ve refreshed our public events programme this year to ensure we’re offering fun and affordable family activities throughout the school holidays. Each half term has a unique theme, ensuring there is something for everyone. Pilot Training at Easter will see families take part in a series of challenges, and in May we’ll be turning back the clock and exploring life in the 1940s. In October we’ll be exploring space with a huge mobile planetarium and blasting rockets in our STEM zone. We also have some exciting plans for the entire summer holidays which we will be announcing very soon.’

Some of the big outdoor events will be returning this year, including the Spitfire 10K in August where participants will race across the airfield and down the runway. Step into the Danger Zone with a series of action-packed films for all the family when the popular Outdoor Cinema event returns in September. The Cosford Food Festival and Large Model Air Show will be taking a break from the schedule this year, instead, the Museum has big plans for a six week long event during the summer holidays.

Event organisers are confident the exciting events programme, combined with exploring the Museum’s vast collection of aircraft, and the interactive experiences in Flight Zone will make a visit to the Museum one to remember!
