On a day that has seen a reasonably successful re-opening of the Museum Shop we now have a disappointing announcement to make that we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the Autumn 1940s Weekend on Sat 3 & Sun 4 October, 2020 - sorry folks!

An update has just been added to the museum website to clarify the situation regarding our current planning work for when the Government guidelines change, and we are allowed to re-open the main museum site again.

Not 100% certain that will be the case, and see us reopening immediately on the 4th, we may defer the date until the following week to stop a rush - bizarrely we turned away 30 cars last Sunday from people who thought that we were open! :blush:

Shop still open as advised in here and a firm date being debated as I type; fresh site changes agreed today that will see aircraft movements on site in advance of the re-opening!

The biggest assistance for us in the next 10 days is people using the Museum Shop, rather than waiting until we re-open the whole site! :thumbs:

That would be great on two counts and any support is appreciated. :clap:

We expect to have a few working members on site on Saturday to look at the new guiding/stewarding opportunities that we will have when we re-open to help 'educate' visitors on the new one-way system that will be in place around the site!

Following our staff meeting today & a few minor operational tweaks we have now decided to move the re-opening date back slightly until Wednesday 8th July at 10am. http://newarkairmuseum.org/Museum_Re-Opening_Plans

An operational description will be notified within the next 48 hours!
