Airbourne (Eastbourne) Airshow History
Eastbourne is a medium sized town in East Sussex, on the south coast of England. It is situated at the eastern end of the South Downs, and boasts the famous Beachy Head cliff, as well as extensive beaches. The main town lies sheltered to the East of the cliffs helping to contribute to its high sunshine record.

The first 'Airbourne' Airshow at Eastbourne took place in 1993. Today the Eastbourne International Airshow, also called Airbourne, is now one of the the world's biggest free seafront airshows which attracts nearly a million people over the four days from Thursday to Sunday in August. The air show helps to contribute to the millions of pounds which tourism brings to the town.

In 2006, the Eastbourne International Airshow lost its main sponsor (Civil Service Motoring Association (CSMA) ) of 6 years and there were calls for the airshow to be scrapped. The local Green Party said the event 'has had its day'. However the council said there were no plans to pull the plug on the airshow and new sponsors were being sought. A number of smaller sponsors were found and this incredibly popular event continues to to be held at Eastbourne.

In 2008, Eastbourne Borough Council controversially decided to charge a five pound admission fee, in order to meet the show's rising costs, having failed to find a major sponsor. However, with visitor numbers down on previous years, and the additional cost of security during the event, the organisers were left with a 170k pound operational loss, and an inquiry was ordered. Lessons were learnt and the air show has continued to be held at Eastbourne.

The Eastbourne International Airshow, also called 'Airbourne', is now one of the the world's biggest free seafront airshows which attracts nearly a million people over the four days from Thursday to Sunday in August.

The air display features military fast jets, helicopters, parachutists and incredible displays from aerobatics teams, and usually includes the Red Arrows.

There are also plenty of ground events including beach play zones with giant inflatables, RAF simulators, Jet Rides and much more. In the evening there is the popular Airbourne Live beach stage offering a wide range of music and entertainment throughout the four days. There is also the traditional end of show fireworks display.

Airbourne Postponed to 2021

We are sorry to say that Eastbourne Airshow will not be taking to the skies this summer as the Covid-19 pandemic continues.

The show will return next year from 12 - 15 August 2021.

For the health and safety of our visitors, we have made this decision, taking into account continuing forms of social distancing measures and ongoing demands on the Emergency Services over coming months.

We have not taken this decision lightly. Over recent weeks we have been monitoring government advice closely, looking into alternative options, from changing dates to altering the format of the event, to try and bring some Airbourne joy into our lives at this difficult time.

However the sheer scale of Airbourne and the incredible level of support required from the Emergency Services, just isn't viable this summer. Due to the commercial risks and logistical implications for everyone involved in the show, we need to make this decision now, and the safety of the public and preventing additional stresses on the Emergency Services and NHS must be our number one priority.

All work so far on Airbourne will be rolled over to next year, with charities for 2021 announced soon, including the result of the People's Charity vote.

All those booking trade stands, hospitality and seating will be contacted in due course with options to transfer to 2021 or receive a refund.

We are saddened at losing our biggest event this summer, however we can assure you we are still working hard behind the scenes, to investigate new events that we can stage on a smaller, socially distanced scale as soon as our visitor economy is back up and running over the coming months.

In the meantime, thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you again at Airbourne 2021!
