Run by volunteers for the benefit of children's and local charities, the Little Gransden Air and Car show has grown from a small local show to one of the major UK airshows, whilst retaining its friendly, local feel.
The show had well over three and a half hours of varied flying; classic, historic and ex-military vehicles and plenty of ground attractions.
More photos and a review will be here soon.
The are more and larger photos taken at the show on this page https://britishairshows.com/photos-little-gransden-2022.
The show has been going since 1992, when it started as a car show with a single flying display. Now there are usually military and vintage vehicles and over three hours of flying alongside other ground attractions.
The show is organised by volunteers for the benefit of Children in Need and local charities.
Amongst the organising team are David Poile MBE (now retired from his position after 30 years with the show), renowned pilot Mark Jefferies, John Jefferies, photographer Adam Cundick, Silver Command Organiser Ollie Hope and event organiser Pip Shoobert.

Use sat Nav SG19 3BP until you get close, but ignore the sat nav in favour of local directions signs as soon as you see them.
There are links to other route planners in the Travel Advice section.
The nearest station is St Neots, which is accessible by train from Peterborough (about 20 minutes) and London. St Neots is about 12Km from Little Gransden.
It is best to book as far as possible in advance. This is not only because nearby hotels and guest houses tend get booked up well before the date of an airshow but also because prices can be better when you book early online.
The location is already built in to the link but please check, and change as necessary, the dates, number of rooms and number of guests.
