Hot air balloons return to the Island’s skies this August

The sky’s the limit this summer as magnificent hot air balloons float back to Robin Hill for a three-day extravaganza! Sky High Night Glow, in association with T&K Masks will run daily from 5-10pm between 20th – 22nd August.

After previously cancelling the event planned for May due to Government restrictions, the Robin Hill team are delighted to be able to stage this balloon exhibition with a few changes at the end of August.

“We’re so pleased that we’re able to offer our visitors the chance to see some hot air balloon action this year! After a successful first week of being back open, we’re confident that with the cooperation of all our guests, we’re able to host Sky High Night Glow in a safe, socially distanced and comfortable environment.” – James Crofts, Park Manager

Focussed in the vast, open-air Lower Valley, the park, weather depending, will be a hive of activity with hot air balloon crews tethering, performing inflation races and attempting mass launches from site; as well as a yet-to-be-announced ‘warm up’ show before the spectacular Night Glow finale.

In association with the Isle of Wight Distillery, an exclusive VIP experience package is also available. This will see a maximum of 40 guests per night benefitting from express entry, complimentary Mermaid Gin & Tonics upon arrival, exclusive goodie bags, meet & greets with pilots and performers, front-row seats to all the action and the chance to enjoy a personalised meal in the sheltered Woodland Ponds VIP area, complete with full table service.

If you’re looking for a special treat and chance to enjoy an evening of incredible food and one-of-a-kind entertainment, this is the option for you!

More details about this package can be found on the Robin Hill Website – VIP Tickets

Having liaised closely with the IW Council, the Robin Hill event management team continue to hold the safety of both their staff and customers of the highest importance and the layout of this outdoor event will ensure all necessary precautions and guidelines are adhered to. Activity will be taking place on the vast Lower Valley field with plenty of space for visitors to sit back, relax and enjoy the extraordinary display in a safe, comfortable environment.
