Bournemouth Air Festival

The 2018 Bournemouth Air Festival returns from Thursday 30 August until Sunday 2 September

The 2018 Bournemouth Air Festival takes place from Thursday 30 August until Sunday 2 September.  Recognised as the biggest festival in Bournemouth, and the biggest seafront air show in Europe, we think it is the best Air Festival in the world! Sit on the beach and watch The Red Arrows perform, with The Needles and Old Harry’s Rock in the background. Relax while the kids frolic in the sea, or build sandcastles at your feet.
There is also so much to do for the whole family:

  • Funfair rides
  • Seafront entertainment
  • Static displays by the Royal Air Force
  • Live music
  • Entertainment, displays and firework displays
  • Red Arrows
  • Royal Navy displays and visits to a ship
  • Royal Marines displays

Keep an eye on the Air Festival website to stay up to date with all the Air Festival news.

Accommodation in Bournemouth is at a premium for Air Festival weekend so it is a good idea to book early.
