Helicopter Flights

We've got some great news, we are pleased to announce that as well as having a bungee jump at the festival this weekend we have also secured a helicopter which will be offering rides.

I'm not sure of the exact details yet but as soon as i find out I'll put them on here. I think it'll be around £25 per person, per flight for around 5-10 minutes (about 10 miles flying distance).

The Helicopter Flights will be operated by Sky High Charter If you have any questions please do send through an e-mail to
