The last time the Red Arrows visited 1066 Country was in 2012 and were a highlight during that year’s Pirate Day festivities.

Thousands of visitors and residents watched in awe as the Red Arrows performed a spectacular display.

This weekend’s displays will be centred over St Mary in the Castle but will extend for miles around.

The event has been organised by Roger Crouch, who served with the RAF, and his team.

People are encouraged to use public transport to get to the displays.
