2011 was the 26th year that Southend-on-Sea has staged one of Europe's largest free Airshows.
The two day Festival of the Air is undoubtedly the most spectacular event in Southend's calendar. Southend was the first seaside resort in the country to stage an Airshow and it's become one of Europe's largest FREE events of its kind, regulary attracting over half a million people to the seafront over the weekend.
The Southend Airshow was the largest free air show in Europe and was regularly held at the end of May during Sunday and Bank holiday Sunday.
In 2013, Southend Borough Council announced its intention to cancel the event citing budget cuts and lack of sponsorship. In response to this announcement Thomas Curtis and John Delaney formed a campaign to try and save the airshow, even attempting to seek an alternative venue, but were ultimately unsuccessful and it was announced in 2015 that the Southend Airshow would not return.
