Northampton Balloon Festival

Join us for the 2017 Northampton Balloon Festival at Billing Aquadrome from Friday 18th to Sunday 20th August!

Whilst ballooning is a weather dependant activity the balloonists want to fly, so if the conditions allow, the balloons will be flying at both 6am and 6pm on each of the three days of the event.

Plus, at 9.00pm on Saturday evening, don't miss the famous “Balloon Glow”, as all the Balloons turn into giant lanterns tethered to the ground. They will also fire their burners in time to music – its magical! 

Entry to the Northampton Balloon Festival is FREE to all holiday makers staying at Billing Aquadrome (minimum 3 night stay applies) Alternatively public day passes are available; 

Car: £5

Adult: £5

Child under 16: Free
