An amazing nostalgia-packed day with entertainment and memories of the ‘swinging sixties’ is expected to be a major ground attraction at the Festival of Flight on Saturday 11th June at Biggin Hill Airport.
The Sixties Village will feature classic cars, original scooters and bicycles and a unique collection of 1960’s memorabilia including the Batmobile, the James Bond Aston Martin, a stunning replica of Gerry Andersons’ ‘Thunderbird 3 and the all-time favourite Dr Who.
At the Village, visitors can take a trip through the world of film and television supported by lifestyle displays and a film and TV poster gallery mixed in among vintage stalls.
Festival patrons can also take a drive around the 66 Monte Carlo GP circuit in a unique driving experience and pose for pictures with the ‘Mods & Rockers’ and ‘Cops & Blaggers’ expos.
On the main stage, the music programme will launch at 4.15pm after The Red Arrows display performance and will provide a continuous journey back to those heady 60’s days with live bands that include ‘The Fliks’ an all-girl 1960’s band. New bands on stage will be ‘The Beatniks’ and ‘Quiff & The Shades’ then later come dance performances from ‘Bright Sparks’ with a medley of 60’s classics. The music programme closes with classic performance from Who’s Next, the UK’s premier Who Tribute band, concluding at around 7pm.
Organiser Colin Hitchins emphasises that the music programme on the main stage in the Sixties Village has been timed to launch after the Red Arrows team display.
“The high profile music entertainment will get under way at 4.15 and will run continuously until 7pm. The quality of the music and performance will make it well worthwhile for visitors to stay on into the early evening” he says.
