Devon’s Largest Balloon Festival, the Tiverton Balloon and Music Festival, returns for 2014 and will once again be supporting Devon Air Ambulance Trust as one of its charities of choice.
Now in its fourth consecutive year, the Festival is due to take place on Friday 11th, Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th of July 2014 at the combined Petroc and Tiverton High School Campus.
This spectacular weekend will see the skies above Tiverton transformed into a canvas of colour as Hot Air Balloonists from across the UK and beyond travel to Devon to take part in a wide array of activities including the stunning Mass Ascents, Public Interaction Sessions and the dazzling Fire and Light Shows.
Caroline Creer, Fundraising Director of Devon Air Ambulance Trust said “We would like to thank the organisers for once again choosing us as one of their beneficiary charities. This is such a fantastic event and a spectacle to watch. Why not buy your tickets now?”
She added “Over the last four years this event has raised the Charity £10,847.59 which is an astonishing amount and one which we would like to say a big thank you for. This sum really makes a difference and helps us to save lives in and around the county of Devon.”
Alongside the hot air balloons there will be two music stages showcasing a selection of local and nationwide talent as well as a variety of aerial displays featuring RC Helicopters, public workshops, an on-site planetarium, a comedy night (Friday), falconry displays, local craft stands, a multitude of delicious food and drinks stalls, plus and much more.
Arthur Street, Director of the Tiverton Balloon and Music Festival said “Following such a wonderful 2013 with every flight flown, great music and record crowds, we look forward to July 2014 with a mixture of excitement, anticipation and a little trepidation at the challenge facing us.”
He added “This is such a fantastic event and even better is that we are able to make substantial donations every year to local good causes.”
