Weston Air Festival and Armed Forces 2019


The 2019 Weston Air Festival will take place on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd June 2019 on the Weston-super-Mare Seafront and Beach Lawns in Weston-super-Mare. The free event is a mix of spectacular aerobatic displays and armed forces celebrations. There will be trade stands and activities to entertain the whole family.

The world-famous Red Arrows return to fly centre stage at Weston Air Festival and will be showcasing their all-new 2019 display routine above the shores of Weston, as one of only a handful of Red Arrows displays in the UK this year. The famous Red Hawk Fast Jets will be heading to the USA in July, which will see them display at several stateside air shows – the first time they have so in more than a decade.

The Chinook, Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, Bremont Great War Display Team, Strikemaster and Team Raven will all take to the skies over Weston Bay this summer,... with more still to come.

The free to attend two-day festival sees hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to Weston-super-Mare to gather on the seafront to witness an astounding line-up or aerial entertainment, as well as enjoy the event village on Weston’s beach lawns.

Weston-super-Mare Armed Forces Weekend are pleased and proud to announce that the HM Royal Marines Band (Plymouth) will open the Armed Forces Weekend on Saturday 22nd June. The Parade will leave the Grand Pier on Weston Promenade at 12:00 midday and proceed along the Promenade to the Armed Forces Village arena on the Beach Lawns opposite Flowerdown House and Somerset Legion House for the Opening Ceremony in the presence of the Town Mayor.

Weston Armed Forces Weekend in conjunction with our friends from Weston Air Festival, provides arguably the biggest and best Free to Enter Armed Forces Event in the South-West.

Since 2014 we have been working together with the Air Festival Team to bring you an exciting, exhilarating and interesting weekend and have rapidly increased our reputations, attracting a regular attendance of over 200,000 visitors.

Weston Armed Forces Weekend starts on Saturday with the Parade along the Seafront and an Opening Ceremony in the arena led by HM Royal Marines Band. This is followed by two days of demonstrations, displays, competitions and musical items, celebrating all sections of our Armed Forces Community.

We also have many stalls, stands and displays, you can visit in our “Armed Forces Village” showcasing the Regular and Reserve Forces, Associations and Veteran Organisations, the Cadet Forces and much more.

On Sunday afternoon 23rd June, our Weekend closes with a Service of Reflection, Muster of Participants and “Sunset Ceremony” whilst during the whole weekend, exhilarating Arial Displays take place in the skies overhead, including the World Famous “Red Arrows” Aerobatic Display Team.

Why not come and join us and have fun celebrating our “Armed Forces Community”?
