The sky’s the limit as magnificent hot air balloons float back into Robin Hill this May half term for a three-day extravaganza!

Running daily from 5pm – 10pm, 29th – 31st May with spectacular Night Glow displays every evening, there’s even more opportunity to see the balloons in action!

The park’s Lower Valley will be a hive of activity with hot air balloon crews tethering, performing inflation races and attempting mass launches from site.
You’ll have the chance to not only marvel at the balloons, but also soak up the atmosphere with a full programme of live music in the Valley and Woodland Ponds.

Last year’s event sold out and Sky High 2021 will also be a limited capacity event. Tickets will sell quickly, so booking online in advance is essential and tickets are now available!
