Book tickets for the Saturday 2 January 2021 trip now. According to December 2020 Tier 2 rules (for both London and Suffolk) we will be allowed to run this event (and will have full safety precautions in place in line with Ramblers guidance) but please be reassured that if Covid prevents this event taking place, you will receive a full refund.
The truth may never be known about the incidents that took place in Rendlesham Forest in December 1980. They have since begun to drift into the mists of folklore, and the mythological fog of war, and have been described as ‘Britain’s Roswell’.
But something truly unusual did happen. A large number of United States Air Force personnel from the nearby twin bases at RAF Woodbridge and RAF Bentwaters witnessed phenomena that none of them have ever been able to explain. The official memo spoke of ‘unexplained lights’ – UFOs being too emotive a term – but, as later emerged, there was much more to it than that.
We have created an experience that takes you on a trip from London to the silent beauty of the Suffolk woods, from the present day to the height of the Cold War, from the everyday to the uncanny. Whether you want to believe, or you are resolutely sceptical, within the remarkable events we find a story of our own fears and compulsions.
We plan to run more dates dependent on demand, so add yourself to the mailing list to hear about further dates as they are announced. 2020 is the fortieth anniversary of the incident: Laurence Fishburne will star in a Sony Pictures Television mini-series, and BBC Radio 4’s adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s The Whisperer in Darkness relocates the action from Vermont to Rendlesham Forest.
