Setting Bournemouth aside from other air shows, when the sun goes down, Night Air entertainment will light up the skies of the UK's leading coastal resort with pyrotechnic night flying, street entertainment, awesome live music and military performances. A free to attend event, the Bournemouth Air Festival is so much more than an air show!
Site opens at 10am and closes at 10pm (on Sunday site closes at 6pm).
On the ground:
There's plenty of action and entertainment on the ground, from funfairs, demonstrations and product sampling to food and drink...not forgetting the brilliant military villages and 'meet the display team' opportunities.
During the festival, Bournemouth's picture-perfect horizon will be transformed by an impressive flotilla of military ships, courtesy of the Royal Navy.
In previous years there have been great number of Royal Navy and Royal Fleet Auxiliary ships, alongside adrenaline pumping amphibious beach assault demonstrations, ship visits and an interactive naval village area.
Night Air Music:
There will be three nights of fantastic live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.
Night Air Entertainment:
Dusk air displays, fireworks, the Beat Retreat Sunset Ceremony, live music and lots of great fun in the lower gardens. There will be fireworks on Friday from Boscombe Pier and Saturday from Bournemouth Pier, both at 10pm.
