Kane at Drift Limits / Events / Fri 08 May 2020




FRIDAY 8TH MAY 2020 - 10:00 TO 16:00

Read this on our website with shiny pictures and maps at http://www.driftlimits.co.uk/ve2020

Welcome to 75!

A VE Day 2020 Celebration of Bovingdon Airfield, USAAF Station 112, RAF Bovingdon and all that served here.

Bovingdon Airfield was first used by the USAAF in August 1942; given over to Civilian Airline use in 1946 and then shared use by the USAF and RAF until being termed ‘Disused’ when military activity ceased with the departure of the RAF in 1968.

The land was divided, bought by multiple land owners and used for different purposes, including flying and filming. Many blockbuster movies have been filmed on part of the site and they continue to be so.

Drift Limits arrived in 2010 and started operating driving experiences shortly after on part of the site, now Runways Farm, where we invite you to come on the 8th of May 2020 to commemorate those who worked here, served here and have a great time while raising money for local charities. All money raised by Drift Limits will be donated to charity and a portion of profits from vendors will be donated too.

’75’ is a full, site wide celebration with:

Full site decorations – Period Music – Dancing – Performing Arts – A Classic Car and Military Vehicle Show – Supercar and Race Car Passenger Rides – Historical Presentations and Exhibitions – A Craft Market full of local artists of many types – A licenced Bar serving Craft Ales and Gins – A Hog Roast – Bubble Waffles – Crepes, Ice-Cream Shakes, Burgers, Hot-Dogs, Vegan & Gluten Free Food and a whole lot more.

We can’t wait to get started and can’t wait for you all to be there!

Oh wait, there’s something very important to say.


That’s right, this event is 100% free to attend for all visitors and exhibitors.

As this is a charity event, Drift Limits will be donating all money raised from Passenger Experiences on the day, to our two supported charities, Community Action Dacorum and Willow Foundation. Our Vendors will also be donating a portion of their profits to them.

What we ask is that you consider donating, dropping what you can into the collection buckets on site. Simply go see one of our charity marshals and they’ll be happy to help!

Want to get involved? Read below!

Classic Car and Military Vehicle owners of Great Britain,
75 wants you!

On this historic day, on this historic site, we’re including a Classic and Military Vehicle show like no other… Located on our B72 Bomber Circuit, on the runway that bombers flew from in WWII, including famous planes like the Memphis Belle.

We’ve got up to 120 extra large 5m wide slots to offer on our circuit, a ground-breaking number of spaces and we want you to use them!

Show and shine your vehicles in your own pitch, set up a picnic and relax in the sunshine on this hallowed ground, remembering those who flew away in those giant steel birds in hopes of the ‘freedom for tomorrow’ that we enjoy today.

If you’d like to be part of this, spaces are limited so send in your details and reserve your slot today.

If you’re part of a car club and would like to reserve a special number of slots (including a slot for a gazebo or club stand) please email us directly to enquire.

Simply send an email to kane@driftlimits.co.uk for consideration.

Creative Artists of Great Britain,
75 wants you!

We’ve got a section of our runway reserved just for you.

We want Artists of all kinds.

Oil Painters. Watercolour Artists, Caricature Artists, Sketchers, Sculpters, Sewists, Knitters, Glassworkers, Jewllers, Florists, Candlemakers, Writers, Bakers…

Any medium you work in, whatever it may be, we want you.

We’ve got up to 60, extra large 5m x 5m bays for you to use as you wish! If you want to set up an installation, gallery, a store, a workstation or simply sit on a chair and recite poetry, that space is yours to release your creativity from.

All tables, chairs, gazebos or whatever else you want to set up must be supplied by yourself. There’s no electrical supply so if you need it, bring your own batteries please!

This is a family friendly event of course, so keep that in mind.

If you’d like to be part of this day, we have a limited number of spaces available for our creative market.

Simply send an email to kane@driftlimits.co.uk for consideration.

“But what does it cost?”


Yes, you read that right and we’re completely serious.
We’re not charging for our space, we just want you to say that you want it, then turn up and use it.

To book a place, simply send an email to kane@driftlimits.co.uk for consideration.

We’d appreciate it if you popped a little bit into one of our supported charity’s pots of course, whatever you can spare.

We’re raising money for local charities, including COMMUNITY ACTION DACORUM and THE WILLOW FOUNDATION.

If you’re a resident of Bovingdon, Whelpley Hill or ex-military personnel, simply turn up with ID showing your name and address and the ride is on us!

All other visitors, a 2-lap high speed hot ride passenger experience costs only £10 and ALL of that will go to charity.

None of our staff will be getting paid to work this day so please, show your support for them by screaming as loud as you can and making those charity buckets rattle until they’re full to the brim.
