2014 Airshows
Red Arrow The Shepway Airshow first began in 1990 when they had a 50th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain airshow. The Shepway District Council continued with an airshow every year up until 2001. They then had an airshow in 2003 which sadly was its last due to the growing costs of running this event.

However the event returned in 2012 with the Folkestone Jubilee Airshow which takes place in early June.

The display is centred on 'The Leas' which gives a superb view from the high vantage point above the cliffs.

Folkestone Airshow 2014

It’s eyes to the skies in June 2014 when Folkestone will once again thrill thousands of visitors with a two day FREE event of spectacular flying and dare devil aeronautical displays.

The show’s organisers, sponsors and exhibitors have pledged to make this the biggest and best Airshow that Folkestone has ever seen.

The weekend promises breathtaking displays, exhilarating fly-bys, heart-in-the-mouth manoeuvres and the chance to see some of the world’s most iconic aircraft in flight.

But the action won’t just be in the air…

A freefall parachute team may ‘drop in’ for a visit, a dramatic demo sea rescue will be staged, and there’ll be live music, dance shows, food stalls, bouncy castles, face painting and lots of other fun attractions.

Star of the Saturday flying programme will be the RAF Red Arrows, which are scheduled to arrive at midday for a 23-minute aerobatics display.
