Hot Air Ballooning Events and Meets
This is where you can get information on where to see balloons in our region, or even join in.

Check also the Year Planner link for the complete calendar (all subject to confirmation, of course).

The late date for entries is a week or two prior to the meet, (see the Entry Form for details). This is so we can sort out the gas ordering and any housekeeping with the sites but if you have left it too late, don't worry, a late entry is possible at an increased fee level and we will try and fit you in.

See also www.balloonevents.org for a worldwide listing.

Montgolfier/40th Anniversary Dinner 20/11/2021  - 20/11/2021
7.00 for 7.30 - Wrightington Hotel, Moss Ln, Wrightington, Wigan WN6 9PB

Come along to our annual club dinner to celebrate the Montgolfier Brothers combined with our Club's 40th Anniversary celebrations.

A fun-filled, action-packed, glorious evening with a DJ to help us dance the night away. After the past 20 months this is a good opportunity to let our hair down with all our ballooning friends.

We would also love to see as many of our past members come along and join us in this celebration.

Please send in your song requests for our enthusiastic DJ to play - add to the entry form in "Notes to Organiser" (max. 2 per booking).

Book now!

The Club has also negotiated special rates for rooms if you wish to stay - single at 80; double/twin - 100 - inc. breakfast. Ring 01257 425803 and mention that you are attending the dinner.

The NWBAC AGM is on the following day (Sunday) at the hotel.
