Our RAF Harrowbeer 1940s Event held in August 2014 was hugely popular with visitors, with estimates of around 5,000 people attending over the two days of the event. We have had many positive comments and are pleased everyone enjoyed the event.
We enjoyed to days of near-perfect weather and lots of visitors arrived to enjoy the day.
We would like to thank all the exhibitors and stalls for helping to make the two days a success.
Special thanks to The Moorland Garden Hotel for being the major sponsor for the visit of the Spitfire.
