Covid Event

FAQs

We have taken steps to ensure that any event held at the Gatwick Aviation Museum is Covid-safe. When hiring the space with us, you will also need to provide us with a full covid-safe risk assessment. 

General Hire

Do you allow dogs on site?


Yes! We are a dog friendly venue, but please do let us know in advance if you would like pets to attend your event.




Do you have disabled access?


We have good disabled access to the car park, toilets, main exhibition hall and Hangar 2. The fields however are made up of grassland and therefore, especially in poor weather wheelchair users may have difficulty.




Can I park on site when booking an event space?


We have plenty of hardstanding parking on site for up to around 40-50 cars, after which grassland parking can be offered. If you need to offer additional parking that will require an overflow car park, we have an overflow field that can hold around 2000 cars. This will be charged at a £2.00 charity donation per car (a min charge of £500 applies)




Can I rent any of spaces on an hourly basis?


Yes, to support local groups in the community we offer hourly hire fees.

All bookings would include free parking.

Monday-Thursday

£10.00 per hour

from 9am - 11pm

Friday - Sunday

£15.00 per hour

from 6pm - 11pm

This is to support local community groups AND cannot be used as a loop whole for build and breakdown for events taking place OR for any commercial events taking place in the evening.
