A mass flypast by more than 20 vintage warbirds will be the centrepiece of commemorations at this summer’s Royal International Air Tattoo to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

Aircraft from around the globe will once again be descending on RAF Fairford to support the airshow’s theme Securing The Skies: Past, Present & Future on July 17-19.

In addition to the seven-hour flying display, visitors will be able to enjoy a feast of showground attractions including the Techno Zone, Adrenalin Zone, Vintage Village and, new for 2015 – the Autodrome.

Cotswold Life is proud to be the Air Tattoo’s official media partner for 2015 and to celebrate we are offering readers the opportunity to enjoy one of the UK’s most exciting days out from the comfort of a stylish enclosure.

The Cotswold Club, which has been established by the Air Tattoo in partnership with Cotswold Life, offers garden seating, a smart lawned area and crowdline location from which to enjoy all the aviation action plus an inclusive tasty, relaxed Cotswold Brunch.


To be in with a chance of winning a pair of Cotswold Club tickets (including Air Tattoo admission, valid for Sunday, July 19), VIP car pass to the airshow plus a fascinating, money-can’t-buy, behind-the-scenes tour of the Air Traffic Control Tower during the airshow, all you have to do is answer the question. There are also five runners-up prizes of a pair of Sunday public admission tickets to the Air Tattoo.

Air Tattoo admission tickets and entry to The Cotswold Club can be purchased for just £87 (Friday, July 17) or £97 (Saturday, July 18 and Sunday, July 19) if purchased by May 31.
