End of Year

November, 2011

From 1st November, our daily closing time will revert to 4.30 pm. As is the norm, the Museum will be closed from 1st December to 31st January 2011 inclusive in order to facilitate redecoration and the provision of new exhibits. The new season will begin at 10.00 am on 1st February 2012.

Several new exhibits have been introduced during the past year. The Ferret project reached completion, our new Lightning simulator was commissioned with a full complement of qualified flying instructors in post and a very popular combat simulator introduced for budding fighter pilots. Our visitor numbers have held up extremely well during the year and are expected to outturn close to the all time record achieved in 2010.

Since our regular website features will, as usual, be suspended during the Museum’s close down period, this will be the final “Tangmere News” for 2011. We therefore take an early opportunity to thank our readers for their support during the year and wish all a very Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year.

Talks by Tangmere

The Museum is pleased to be able to offer speakers to interested groups or societies on a range of subjects connected with the history of operations at RAF Tangmere and other military aviation subjects.

The presentations are usually given as an audio/visual presentation using the Museum's equipment. Our presentations can be tailored to suit audiences ranging from specialist societies to community based groups and range in length from 40 to 90 minutes depending on the subject matter.

Further details of the full range of presentations and the availability of speakers can be obtained by calling the museum on 01243 790090, by emailing your interest to director@tangmere-museum.org.uk or by letter marked for the attention of the Director.
