BALLOONS, bands and a bundle of entertainment will be on offer at Tiverton Balloon and Music Festival.

The annual festival, which raises funds for Devon Air Ambulance Trust and Children’s Hospice South West, runs from July 11-13 at the combined Petroc and Tiverton High School Campus.

Balloonists from the UK and beyond will take part in activities including mass ascents, public interaction sessions and fire and light shows.

Two music stages will showcase local and nationwide talent and other attractions include aerial displays featuring RC Helicopters, public workshops, on-site planetarium, comedy night on Friday, falconry displays, local craft stands, food and drinks stalls and much more.

Tiverton Balloon and Music Festival director Arthur Street, said: “Following demand from visitors, many of whom travel for more than three hours to the festival, we have significantly increased the camping capacity, thus allowing visitors to fully enjoy their ‘Entry All 3 Days’ tickets, purchased in advance at the same price as a one-day ticket purchased on the day.”
