One of the Largest Aircraft Festivals is Just Next Door!


The Bournemouth Air Festival is in Dorset for the 7th year in a row – and has become one of the biggest and best seaside air shows in the UK and is a mere 35 minute drive or a £3.25 one-way coach ticket away from Southampton.

The festival will be held Thursday to Sunday of the 28-31 August, on the sandy beaches between Boscombe and Bournemouth Piers. The Royal Navy and Army will be giving impressive displays on air, land and sea! You will see a huge number of static and interactive displays of aircrafts, land vehicles, helicopters, armoury and much more!

Few shows can match the atmosphere or experience of the Bournemouth Air Festival.

Attending the show itself is FREE, but there are a number of exciting events happening which you may consider buying tickets for – for example the live music concerts and a premium location with delicious food at the Air Festival hospitality.

Hurry up though, as tickets are selling fast! Some money raised during the Bournemouth Air Festival every year goes to charities.

For any additional information you may need, such as the aircraft line-up, tips on getting there (hint: don’t go by car), check out the official web site of the festival:
