Following the phenomenal success of this year’s Weston-super-Mare Air Festival and Armed Forces weekend, North Somerset Council has announced the date for the 2016 event: Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 June, 2016.

Cllr Felicity Baker, executive member for tourism, said: “This year’s event was a fantastic crowd-puller and advert for the area. Visitor number estimates for the Sunday were a staggering 150,000 and crowds enjoyed beautiful weather, brilliant aerial displays, as well as looking at the many displays on the ground.

“People were also able to take in the Armed Forces events – a chance to appreciate all the great things our armed forces do for us. “Planning is now getting under way for next year’s event so keep in touch for the latest information.” Follow @WestonSeafront on twitter for updates or visit www.westonairfestival.com
