The 2015 1940s Weekend will be organised by the RAF Harrowbeer Interest Group and will take place over the weekend of the 15th & 16th August 2015 (from 10am to 5pm daily) on land around the restored Dispersal Bay, at Axtown, Yelverton.
We are pleased to announce that the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight have provisionally offered us a flying display by their Douglas Dakota aircraft on either the Saturday or Sunday. This will be dependent on final confirmation in the New Year but for now, we need to raise £1,200 to be able to make this happen. As our event is completely free to attend, we rely on donations from visitors to pay for boring things like toilets, insurance, road closures, tentage, sound systems etc. The 2014 event covered these costs so now we need to raise money for next year's event.
Please see the Dakota Appeal page to see how you can help make this happen!
Further information about the event will appear in due course and details will be found under the headings on the left.

The BBMF have provisionally offered us the chance to have their Douglas Dakota give a flying display at the 2015 event. This is subject to confirmation in the New Year, and our ability to raise £1,200 to be able to make this happen.
