The Royal Air Force Charitable Trust Enterprises, organiser of the Royal International Air Tattoo, gift our profits to our parent charity the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust (RAFCT). To maximise these profits for our own charitable causes we, therefore, have to carefully monitor the number of free entry tickets that are issued to schools, local community groups and other organisations for fundraising events. 

As a major visitor attraction, situated near Cirencester, Gloucestershire, we would like to support our local community as much as possible.

In order to manage the process of donating free tickets to other groups, organisations and charities the following criteria applies.

Ticket donations will only be considered for the following:

1. Schools and community groups situated within five miles of RAF Fairford

2. Organisations or other registered charities whose work clearly supports or relates to our own mission: to PROMOTE the Royal Air Force, to SUPPORT its people now and into the future and to ENCOURAGE air-mindedness and the aviation-related education of youth.

We will consider all applications based on the above criteria and successful applicants will be notified by letter or email. 

The charity ticket donation will comprise:  TWO ADULT STANDARD ADMISSION TICKETS VALID FOR SUNDAY 19 JULY 2020 ONLY. Children aged 17 years and under have free admission to the Air Tattoo in 2020 and we do not restrict the number of children per ticket-holding adult.

Please Note: 
  • Applications for charity tickets will not be considered from individuals or groups wishing to attend the Royal International Air Tattoo. This allocation of tickets is only for local schools, groups and organisations for fundraising events which meet the above criteria.
  • The closing date for charity ticket applications is midnight on May 31 2020.
  • The event at which the tickets are being raffled/auctioned must take place on or before Sunday 5 July 2020
  • Winning tickets must be claimed by 5.00pm on Friday 10 July 2020
  • If you have not been contacted within 28 days of applying your application has not been successful as it is likely that it does not fall within our criteria. Due to the number of applications received for our limited charity ticket allocation, it is not possible for us to respond to every request. We hope you understand our policy on this.
To apply please complete this form at least one month prior to your event.
