Southport Airshow History
The first Southport Airshow was an annual event held in Southport, Merseyside, England, since 1991. The airshow takes place in September, and attracts around 150,000 spectators making it the North West's largest Airshow.

The flying programme includes a good mixture of military and civilian aircraft, classic jets, warbirds, helicopters, aerobatics and parachute displays. The show features a whole host of trade stands, interactive and educational displays, simulators, military vehicles, assault courses, bungee trampolines, and children's activities.

Friday night will have flying displays to music with pyros and LED lights and a firework finale. Saturday and Sunday has two full days of flying with plenty of entertainment in between.

Southport Airshow 2020:

11-13 September - Southport Airshow 2020 CANCELLED


Southport Airshow 2020 CANCELLED:

Due to the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) situation in the UK and the impact that it is having, Sefton Council has been forced to take the difficult decision to cancel the Southport Air Show (12 - 13 September) and the British Musical Fireworks Championship (25 - 27 September). The events will return next year (2021).

Each year these flagship events attract visitors from all over the UK and generate millions of pounds for Sefton's local economy, supporting local businesses.

Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council's Labour Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills, says, "Every autumn we welcome thousands of people to Southport to enjoy these two major events in the town; the Southport Air Show and the British Musical Fireworks Championship. However, as the latest government guidance on the next stages of its Covid-19 response indicate, it will not be possible or responsible for large-scale events to take place.

"We understand this news will disappoint a lot of people, but we all have to work hard to protect the health and the wellbeing of our communities, and the safety of everyone involved including visitors, exhibitors, traders, staff, contractors, and the many more who contribute and play a part in delivering these much-loved events. These are the factors at

the very forefront of our decision. We look forward to welcoming everyone again next year."

The date for the 2021 Southport Air Show is Saturday 3 July to Sunday 4 July.
