Is this just the big Village set up - presumably there are smaller ones at other shows?  I know Weston this weekend has a stall planned - also, will there be a stall during the corporate week for Farnborough (rather than just the main weekend flying days)?

Vulcan Village / Hamlets do not include Club organised events eg Weston. They are centrally organised by The Events Team in Hinckley and vary in size from 8M x 4M upto 15M x 25M.
The larger units tend to be where the aircraft is on the ground and it is a full weekend show eg Waddington.
Farnborough is still under discussion regarding facilities ...... so watch this space or other spaces for news

Ahhhhhhh I see :-)  Thank you, sorry to ask what is probably a very repeated question!

Rachel,

It was not a much repeated question as the new format was only put into action at Cosford for the first time...............!
Whilst it puts extra strain on the volunteer force the results can be more fulfilling overall......at least that was the feedback from Cosford from Customers, Staff on site, and the management at Hinckley.

Believe it or not it is very hard not to laugh when during the monsoon downpour someone decides to tip the water off the roof just when you are walking under it !

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat??  Did that happen?

I think its great that the Vulcan has so many options for public interaction at the various shows  -  I believe that is what has made the difference.

Hamlet. Leaves potential customers with the dilemma 'To buy or not to buy, that is the question' (Apologies to the Bard)
