Billing Aquadrome – Friday 16th to Sunday 18th August 2019

The 2019 Northampton Balloon Festival will be the 30th event and one that was a spectacular sight in the skies over Northamptonshire. 


Whilst ballooning is a weather dependant activity the balloonists want to fly, so if the conditions allow, the balloons will be flying at both 6am and 6pm on each of the three days of the event.

At 9.00pm on Saturday evening, we will also be having a “Balloon Glow”. Come and watch the balloons turn into giant lanterns tethered to the ground, pulsating to the music – its magical!


Have a look around our website to see what’s going on and to keep up to date with all the activities.
