The main event held annually at Mandeville is the Mandeville Fly-In. It’s a great family day out with entry to the museum and workshop tours included in the entry fee. The local steam club brings up its traction engines for a “classic” race down the air field each day and if the weather plays the part there is opportunity to fly in a vintage bi-plane.
The 2017 event was held in March to coincide with a visit from the Tiger Moth Club of New Zealand.
Throughout the year, the foyer for the Croydon Aviation Heritage Centre doubles as an exhibition space celebrating local artists and stories. Entry to the exhibitions is free.
