Weston Air Festival History
Weston is home to the helicopter museum and was the venue for the 'Heli-Days' event which took place every year and featured various helicopters on the beach lawns.

The 'Heli-days' event has now been replaced by the Weston Air Festival which takes place in June each year and includes a full air show and also includes the 'National Armed Forces Day' celebrations.

Weston Air Festival began in June 2013 and was called 'Weston Air Day' as it was held on just one day. It has since become a two-day event called 'Weston Air Festival and Armed Forces Weekend'.

Weston Air Festival is a free two-day air show which takes place in June. It also includes the 'National Armed Forces Day' celebrations.

As well as an air display of over 5 hours each day there is also a static display of helicopters on the beach lawns as well as an Armed Forces Arena, Fun Fair, simulators, inflatables, and trade stands.



Weston Air Festival 2020:

27-28 June - Weston Air Festival 2020 CANCELLED


Weston Air Festival 2020 Cancelled:

Following recent events and in line with government guidance, it is with great regret that Weston Air Festival, which was set to take place on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 June, has been cancelled.

Cllr Caritas Charles, executive member for tourism services at North Somerset Council, said: "Weston Air Festival is a brilliant annual feature on the South West event calendar and we love bringing the spectacle to the seafront and beach lawns for both local and national audiences. At this time, it is crucial that we follow all government and medical authority guidance, so it is with regret that we are cancelling the event.

"Although it is a very difficult decision, our priority is to protect both air festival visitors as well as the local residents of Weston-super-Mare. As one of the region's flagship events it is of huge importance and we would like to extend our thanks to our flying teams, suppliers, organising teams and visitors for their support for the event."

In 2019, Weston Air Festival featured displays from the Red Arrows, Battle of Britain Memorial Display and Chinook amongst others and was attended by 200,000 people. We look forward to planning for the 2021 event in due course.
