Clacton Airshow History
The well established and free Clacton Airshow will be celebrating 25 years in 2016. Over 220,000 people attended the airshow in 2015.

The event is organised by Tendring District Council and is based in the stunning Tendring District along the award winning Essex Sunshine Coast.

The Clacton Airshow was cancelled in 2020 due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and during 2021 a smaller 'Clacton 150 anniversary flights' event featuring the Red Arrows and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will take place.

Battle of Britain Memorial Flight - Clacton Airshow.

Red Arrows - Clacton Airshow.

The Clacton Airshow takes place on the sea front at Clacton-on-Sea in Essex. The show usually takes place on a Thursday and Friday in August.

There will not be a full airshow in 2021 but instead there will be an event called 'Clacton 150 anniversary flights' which will consist of displays by the Red Arrows and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

There will be no trade, exhibition, ground events/entertainment or programmes sold. However, a full air show will return next year on 25th & 26th August 2022.
