The Annual Bournemouth Air Festival will take place on
August 31st – 3rd September 2023
Whatever you want to see, be it on land, sea or in the air there will be plenty to keep you entertained this year. As well as flying displays throughout the afternoon and early evening there will be so much more to see across the whole area including a Royal Navy dive tank, unarmed combat displays, cooking demonstrations by Navy chefs, the newly located RAF village, product sampling from a multitude of traders and of course the traditional Funfair.
Here is where you will find all you need to make your way to the Air Festival – whether it’s by car, using the park & ride service, public transport, bus, coach or train.
