Battle of Britain 80: The Night Shoot

3 October @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for this one-off special event for amateur and professional photographers to take unique photos at the airfield where Battle of Britain history took flight.

Look back to the summer of 1940 through your camera lens as a private area of the museum is dressed to form a life-like Battle of Britain scene. Capture Duxford’s historic buildings and airfield just as they were 80 years ago.

Take photos of iconic Battle of Britain aircraft and vehicles up close, including the Spitfire Mk.I N3200, Curtiss Hawk 75 and Fiat CR.42. You will also have the option to direct our 1940s fighter pilot and Women’s Auxiliary Air Force life models to get the perfect set up for your shots.

This intimate photography event is strictly limited availability and includes exclusive after-hours access into the evening – perfect to capture the serene sunset on this historical base.

Choose our Premium Ticket to experience the spectacular sight of the running engines from two of our historical aircraft. The Premium Ticket allows you to get up close to the airfield as these beautiful warbirds come alive.

Your safety is our priority. Please take a moment to read about the social distancing measures we’ve put in place for this event.
