Come and see Telford's skies filled with spectacular flying objects over the weekend to celebrate Telford 50.

Lindstrand Technologies will be bringing a variety of hot air balloons that will be floating above your heads at intervals throughout the day as well as being tethered in the QE11 arena for you to see.

The flights will be followed by a beautiful night glow where the balloons become wonderful floating lanterns bouncing to music on the Saturday evening.

Ballooning is weather dependant.

We want to fly, tether and glow and we will if the weather is suitable… but this is England! Please bear with us if the weather does not allow us – we will be as disappointed as you.
