Sunderland Airshow History
Sunderland International Airshow is one of the biggest free annual airshows in Europe, held at the Roker and Seaburn seafronts.

It takes place over the course of three days, usually the final weekend in July (Friday to Sunday), and attracts around 1,000,000 spectators every year.

The airshow was first held in 1989 as a single day show, and was planned to be a one-off event, when it attracted 250,000 spectators. Due to its success, from 1991 it became a two-day show, and subsequently three days.

The Sunderland International Air Show usually takes place over three days on the last weekend of July, and the air display is held over the coastline at Seaburn and Roker in Sunderland.

With high-speed jets, breathtaking display teams and precision flying in the air and a massive choice of activities on the ground, there's something for all the family at this action-packed weekend. The Royal Navy also traditionally have a warship off the coast every year.

The Friday night launch is rounded off with a large firework display.

The air displays on Saturday and Sunday are set to run from 10am until 6pm. On the ground there will be plenty of family-friendly attractions and in the Roker Park Family Zone are children's activities, trampolines, small inflatables, zorbing, zip wire, mini tanks, and storytelling.
