Staffordshire Balloon Fiesta_logo-01 FAVICON🎈 The Staffordshire Balloon Fiesta will be landing on Uttoxeter Racecourse in 2021.🎈


Unfortunately, due to the government announcement on the 14th of June regarding extending lockdown until the 19th of July, we will be postponing the event to a later date.

The Show Time Events Team are working to find an alternative date and speaking with the racecourse. Any tickets that have been purchased are safe and can be transferred to the new date when it is announced or refunded. Full guidance on this will be published as soon as it has been confirmed with Skiddle.

We understand how frustrating this is when you have purchased tickets and appreciate everyone’s patience and ongoing support.
