EASTBOURNE INTERNATIONAL AIRSHOW FEATURING FIREWORKS

WHAT: EASTBOURNE INTERNATIONAL AIRSHOW 2019 – FEATURING FIREWORKS
WHY: INTERNATIONAL AIR SHOW
WHERE: EASTBOURNE SEAFRONT
WHEN: THURSDAY 15TH AUGUST TO SUNDAY 18TH AUGUST 2019
COST: FREE ENTRY

From the first show that took place in 1993, the event has grown and grown and is now recognized as one of the biggest free seafront air show that now attracts over one million people in the four days that it is held.

This year the event will be celebrating 27 years and unfortunately, the red arrows won’t be taking part this year due to other commitments but in their place, the fantastic Breitling jet team will be taking to the skies to thrill the audiences with speed, precision, and daring aerobatics.

Along with this, there will be a fantastic array of activities on offer in the air you will see the very best in the military and civilian aviation display teams with RAF typhoon, chinook, the blades, wing walkers and the famous battle of Britain memorial flight. On land military exhibition groups, kids’ beaches, simulator rides, trade stalls, try out a cockpit for size or enjoy a film on the big screen.

The evening is also filled with entertainment as the airborne live takes place on the beach stage offering a wide range of music and entertainment.

The event is free for everyone to enjoy, but if you are an aviation enthusiast you can upgrade to exclusive seating and avoid the crowds. Sit back, relax and enjoy the show from around £6 on Thursday and £10 the rest of the days. If you fancy something a little more exclusive there is hospitality boasting uninterrupted views of the display line from the western lawns with highflyers @ the aviator club seats from around £99 per person and on Sunday, the departure lounge dining from £59 per person.

If you just want to take in the show for free there are plenty of places to watch you can choose the seafront and beach, the western lawns and wish tower, beachy head beach and for somewhere a little different the redoubt fortress gun platform.
