Organised by STAAR Research in association with Space & Rocket Enterprises, Paisley Model Centre and Kelburn Country Centre.
This, the 7th international festival of rocketry to be held in the United Kingdom - including experimental rocket flying, high power rocketry, model rocketry competions, exhibitions, and social events - will once again be held in the beautiful setting of the Kelburn Country Centre, in the county of Ayrshire, Scotland. The Kelburn Country Centre lies on the Clyde Estuary coast, south of the city of Glasgow, on the A78 road between the towns of Largs and Fairlie. Situated on the West coast of Scotland, views from the Kelburn Country Centre extend across to the Isles of Arran and Cumbrae.
There will be a Workshop and Exhibition space in the Pavilion next to the launch site and flying field. The Pavilion also provides sheltered quarters. The workshop will be open and available throughout the Rocket Weekend for the building, preparation and repair of rockets and equipment, and for the display by participants of Exhibition material and items related to model and professional rocketry, spaceflight or any other relevant material.
This year, the event has been expanded from 3 days to 8 days, and hence called the International Space and Rocketry Week (incorporating the International Rocket Weekend).
