August events: Grab a beach spot for the Bournemouth Air Festival

Bournemouth, Dorset

The world's biggest airshow brings together the thrill of gravity-defying plane displays and an abundance of family entertainment on the ground - all for free!

Bournemouth Air Festival is a UK Tourism Event of the Year - one of the premier events in the national and international calendar. 

Head down to the seafront at the end of August to see amazing displays of aerial excellence, all against a backdrop of a flotilla of Royal Naval ships. On the ground, there's an abundance of family entertainment - from virtual reality experiences and marching bands, to funfairs and Royal Marines combat displays - and 1.5 miles of tasty food vendors.

The skies of Bournemouth host some of the world’s best military and civilian aviation display teams and a huge off shore naval presence. When the sun goes down, Night Air entertainment lights up the skies with night flying illuminated by pyrotechnics and the moon.
