Last year some 14,000 attendees were blown away by the amazing performances, air show and fireworks.  Picnic, seated areas, VIP nights and hospitality – the choices are all for the grabbing.

The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra (RPO) has delighted audiences worldwide with its versatile programming, having been in constant demand for live performances since its formation in 1987.

The Military Wives Choir from Salisbury Plain are back this year with their stunning performance.  In December 2011, having been inspired by the BBC’s The Choir series of The Military Wives with Gareth Malone, six ladies from Bulford met up to discuss the possibility of forming their own choir.
