Chiswick Auctions have kindly agreed to join the festival with their valuers, so keep visiting BF2011 for updates on this exciting addition.

  • Boston Manor House - Jacobean Jewel

  • Flight Simulator

Travel 'virtually' anywhere without spending hours stuck in airports and the hassle of packing suitcases. Visit the Brentford Festival and experience the sensation of flying your own plane to virtual destinations. Only your imagination can limit the exotic countries (and planets) you can virtually reach. You will be able to catch your flight from the car park near the Pavilion Cafe.

  • Adrenalin Rush

Adrenalin Rush Laser Combat (ARLC) provides yet more action packed family fun. ARLC is like stepping into a LIVE videogame such as Counter-Strike, Halo or Call Of Duty, with a strong emphasis on small unit tactics and leadership. This adrenalin-filled game is for anyone from 7 to 100 to play. The less mobile can take up a sniper role, staying in one position and picking opponents off! It’s not about how fast you move, but how you move! You can contact the company for your own events and parties. ARLC will be based in the Meadow, close to the canal.
