Event description

Description

Shobdon has always been a popular destination especially for new PPL holders. The flight of less than fifty miles and around half an hour is virtually free of controlled airspace. What better excuse do you need for a visit than heading to the Shobdon Food and Flying Festival.

Set in beautiful north Herefordshire surroundings Shobdon is a historic WW2 airfield and this unique event combines the best local gastronomy, a host of aviation attractions, arts and crafts, demonstrations, live music and lots more.
There’s the chance to browse the incredible collection of static aircraft and helicopters and watch dozens of interesting arrivals from around the country throughout the weekend.

Sample and buy from over seventy of the very best food and drink producers from Herefordshire and the surrounding counties including succulent local meats, breads and cheeses as well as ice-cream, confectionery, cakes and much, much more. Sample award-winning local ciders, wines and ales brewed within just a few miles of our showground and enjoy incredible flavours from around the world.

Head West and Shobdon (EGBS) is six miles west of Leominster on the marches close to the border of England and Wales. There is a 836 metre hard runway in addition to a parallel grass runway.
