South Port Air Show
Friday 15th September - Sunday 17th September
The Friday night show starts at 6pm and will see The Tigers Free Fall Team and The Typhoo take the sky. The show will draw to an end with the OTTO Helicopter who will perform amazing evening displays with spectacular pyrotechnic effects!
Saturday and Sunday is when the fun will really begin, gates will open at 9am and the Air Show will begin at 1pm but there will also be plenty of activities available to keep you and your family entertained. Expect Water Walkers and a Military Area for you to get involved with. There are numerous opportunities for you and your family to take some great pictures as Lytham St Annes are bringing with them an iconic Mark IX Spitfire BS435 in the colours of 611 for you to climb on board and pose for pictures and there will also be an amazing replica Typhoon for you to get up close with.
Along the beach there will be a Living Museum where many people will be dressed up as soldiers and with them have an array of army equipment for visitors to try on and experience what it was really like to be in the trenches! Mini tanks will be available for kids to drive around the beach before they head over to see the full sized military tanks. Other attractions such as a Paintball Range, Bungee Trampolines, Land Zorbs and Jet Simulators will also be available! Don’t worry if you are unable to make Saturday’s festivities as it will all happen again on Sunday!
Visitors will be able to see the military services, military vehicles and simulators all in action by the arena. There will also be a grand firework finale from previous winners of the British Musical Fireworks Champions, Sirotechnic’s Fireworks.
You can travel to the event by both train and by car. If by train, the nearest station is Southport which is about a 10 minute walk from the event site. If you are parking, parking can be purchased in advance but there will be limited spaces available. Parking is available on the beach, Marine Drive, the Esplanade car park and Victoria Park. Travelling home from the Air Show may be congested, so delaying your journey by as little as an hour can have an impact on your travel time.
