Please note that I cannot guarantee that any event listed above will actually take place - merely that it was intended to (I went to the Shoreham Bus Rally in 1998 without checking first and it had been cancelled - I should listen to my own advice ! I also went to the White Waltham Air Display in 2000 and that had been cancelled as well - I obviously never learn !). I also don't guarantee the accuracy of the information, but I do my best....

Please send details of any suitable event that you know about, and I will list it.
