Sky High organisers issue local notice for hot air balloon flights


Sky High organisers issue local notice for hot air balloon flights

The countdown to the South Coast’s largest hot air balloon bonanza, Sky High Night Glow, is on!

From August 20th – 22nd, Robin Hill will see magnificent hot air balloons fill the skies once more. After a record-breaking first instalment in May, Sky High Night Glow will return daily from 5pm – 10pm; with spectacular Night Glow displays every evening, there’s even more opportunity to see the balloons in action!

The park’s Lower Valley will once again be a hive of activity with hot air balloon crews tethering, performing inflation races, and attempting mass launches from site! But that’s not all… Alongside their hot air balloon themed entertainment will be live music, street performers and a selection of delicious dinner options, including the arrival of popular food vendors, Feast Street, with delicious burgers, pizzas, puddings and more!

Standard Park entry to Robin Hill from August 20th – 22nd guarantees guests the entertainment programme for their Sing-Along Safari from
12pm – 4 pm, the ability to book Brainiac LIVE shows at 4.30pm and 7.30pm, and a full evening of Sky High Night Glow on their Lower Valley.

Official Notice

Robin Hill would like to issue a courtesy notice to all local landowners and businesses that planned hot air balloon flights are expected from Wednesday 18th – Sunday 24th August 2021.

Due to the nature of balloon flight relying heavily on calm winds and stable air, flights are unlikely to take place outside of the following early morning and evening times on those dates: 6am – 7am / 6:30pm – 8pm.

Balloon flights are operated and managed by qualified flight crews; all pilots are licensed by the Civil Aviation Authority, carry a Certificate of Airworthiness and are not directly controlled by Robin Hill management. Pilots are wholly responsible for their own conduct when flying and will in accordance with codes of conduct published by both CAA and BBAC.

If you have any concerns or queries, please get in touch via [email protected] and they will be passed on to the event’s balloon crew management.
