Southport Airshow History
The first Southport Airshow was an annual event held in Southport, Merseyside, England, since 1991. The airshow takes place over two days, usually in September, and attracts around 150,000 spectators making it the North West's largest Airshow.

The flying programme includes a good mixture of military and civilian aircraft, classic jets, warbirds, helicopters, aerobatics and parachute displays. The show features a whole host of trade stands, interactive and educational displays, simulators, military vehicles, assault courses, bungee trampolines, and children's activities.

At the start of the day you can see aircraft landing on the beach on the purpose built runway, a spectacle unique to Southport Air Show. You can get up close to them and the microlights as they park on the beach for the show.

The Southport Seafront Air Show is recognised as the North West's largest Airshow. The 2017 Southport Air Show was a fantastic event and included the first ever Friday Night Launch Night which was spectacular with lights and pyros on planes and a huge firework FINALE!

Combining a spectacular air display with a host of ground activities, the Southport Airshow is an exhilarating and fun-filled experience that the whole family can enjoy.

The event promises to be one of the aviation calendar's most spectacular events, providing stunning views of the best jets, fighters, bombers, helicopters and aerobatic aircraft.

Southport Airshow 2018:

The 27th Southport Air Show, in 2018, will take place over three days but this time in July. This is because of high tides running throughout September next year, the Air Show has been brought back to the 6th, 7th and 8th of July.

Last year (2017), the displays on the Friday night featured aircraft flying to music at dusk, pyros and LED lights - a first ever for the Southport Air Show. The launch started a weekend of fun packed flying, ground activity from the military, all finished off with a firework finale to launch the weekend.

Friday Night Flying:
Begin your Air Show experience in style with the Friday Night Launch Event.

An air display with a difference! Each display will fly to music giving it a really different feel to the rest of the displays over the weekend. Some aircraft will have LED lights and even pyrotechnics attached to them - with the beautiful backdrop of the Southport coastline, these displays will light up the skies.

Explore the event site and you will find plenty to eat and drink, flight simulators, military services, armoured vehicles and plenty more to keep the kids entertained in between the flying displays.

And if that isn't enough the evening ends with a grand firework finale by previous British Musical Fireworks Champions, Sirotechnics Fireworks.

Tickets are from only £6.50 in advance and children under 5 are FREE.
