Bournemouth Airshow History
Bournemouth is a large town and tourist resort, situated on the south coast of England. The Bournemouth Air Festival takes place between Bournemouth and Boscombe Piers and in the Lower Gardens and the number of visitors are anticipated to be in excess of up to 200,000 per day. The FREE four day spectacular is set against the backdrop of Bournemouth's seven miles of award-winning beaches, beautiful bay and glorious gardens.

The first Bournemouth Air Festival was held from 28-31 August 2008, attracting over 750,000 visitors. In 2009, it was held from 20-23 August and attendance almost doubled to an estimated 1,344,000 people.

The Award winning and internationally renowned Airshow have welcomed incredible jets and display teams, had year-on-year increased assets from the RAF and RN (who regard the festival as a key event in their calendar), won the Green Apple environmental award in 2011 and been recognised for Marketing and PR by the European Airshow Council (2010, 2012 and 2014).


Bournemouth Air Festival 2016:

During the festival, Bournemouth's picture-perfect horizon will be transformed by an impressive military flotilla, including 4 ships, courtesy of the Royal Navy, which includes a large amphibious command ship complete with helicopters, Royal Marines, and landing craft, which will perform an amphibious beach assault.

The Royal Navy & Army will once again be demonstrating their land, sea and air capabilities with a number of great static and interactive displays at their Village area.

This year's Night Air entertainment, with Wave105, runs across three nights (Thursday 18, Friday 19 and Saturday 20 August). It includes fireworks at 10pm on Friday and Saturday, along with three fantastic music nights created to spread the entertainment across all generations.

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.
