Sunday September 11th from 12.00 to 17.00

The launch of the Kenley Revival Project will be held on the Portcullis field of Kenley Airfield at the annual Kenley Airfield Friends’ Group Heritage Day on Sunday September 11th from 12.00 to 17.00. This very popular day will feature all the regular attractions plus some new ones. We'll have model aircraft displays; free 1940's food tastings, guided heritage walks, live 1940's music/jazz band, BBQ, teas/coffee and cakes, local community and trade stands, military vehicles, classic vehicles/scooters and long wave radio demonstrations.
New for this year will be a full size replica Spitfire and Hurricane, Battle of Britain exhibition trailer which contains memorabilia, information and other items for visitors to read through and look at plus a re-enactor in RAF uniform to guide people through the exhibits. Finally there will be a land train running around the perimeter track with a live commentary so that those less able to get around can see Kenley and learn about the significance of Kenley Airfield’s heritage.

Final Call Heritage Day Volunteer Roles
We need volunteers from 11.30-5.30 on the day for a variety of roles, we envisage this being 2x2 hour shifts with a 2 hour break to enjoy the day. There will be a variety of tasks; stewarding/ car park attendants/ litter pickers/ monitoring events and attractions/ manning stalls and generally assisting with the crowds. We need as many hands on deck to make this a successful launch event for the project.

Please do get in contact even if you cannot commit to the above but would still like to help, these roles are flexible and we need as much help as possible.

Once you have registered your interest there will be a briefing session on the week of the event as well as a on-the-day briefing on the Sunday morning.

The deadline for volunteers for this event is the 5th August
