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.
