Aeroboot on firm footing


The Aeroboot sale is coming to Newark for September The Aeroboot sale is coming to Newark for September

Newark Air Museum has decided to go ahead with hosting an Aeroboot sale at the site, to be held 26 September.

Newark Air Museum has now been re-opened to the public for three weeks and visitors have adapted well to the Covid-Secure processes implemented around the 16-acre Gateway Aviation Site, which is located in eastern Nottinghamshire, close to the Lincolnshire border.
Building on the experiences of this challenging time the museum trustees have decided to move forward with hosting an outdoor Aeroboot/Aerojumble Sale at the museum’s site on Saturday, 26 September, 2020.This charity fund raising event has attracted interest from a wide range of sellers and around 70% of the spaces have already been booked.

This sale will take place on the western end of the Southfield Site, and will follow a similar format to the outdoor sales that have previously accompanied Cockpit-Fest. The Aeroboot will be a stand-alone event, with no general access to the main museum site or facilities; these will continue to operate on the current Covid-Secure basis. Toilets will be provided and there will be a catering unit on site. Car parking for the sale will be close by, on the northern section of the grassed site.

Buyer’s admission rates to the Aeroboot will be £3 per person. To help buyers enter the event quickly they will be encouraged to have the correct cash available when they arrive. The Aeroboot admission ticket will allow buyers a discounted admission to the museum, but this will need to be made via the new Covid-Secure one-way system that now operates around the whole Museum site.

Visitors who attend this fund-raising event will have the opportunity to search through a varied selection of aviation and avionic items: including books, paintings, prints, DVDs, plastic kits, die-cast models, clothing, radio equipment and aircraft parts. Regular updates/seller’s information are being posted on the news page of the museum website

The Aeroboot sale and museum opening times will be 9am to 4pm, with the sale taking place between 9am and 2pm.
