A spokesperson for the country park said: "Ballooning is highly dependent on weather conditions and in the event of unsuitable conditions, balloon flights may be cancelled.

"However, there will be plenty of other activities and entertainment over the weekend to enjoy while sitting by the lake or exploring the site with family and friends."

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Wednesday, January 10 at oldbuckenhamcountrypark.com, including four-day camping tickets if you want to soak up the festival atmosphere all weekend.
