The Southport Air Show

The Southport Air Show is proudly one of the largest Air Shows in the North West of England! It’s been an annual event held on Southport beach since 1991. The scheduled programme includes many different types of aircraft and aircraft-related fun, such as military planes, civilian planes, classic jets, helicopters, warbirds, parachute displays, and even the iconic Red Arrows take to the sky! The event attracts tens of thousands of tourists and residents alike! There are also some fascinating educational displays if you’re looking to learn a little, as well as trade stands selling all kinds of goodies and delicious hot food to keep your tank full!

Where can I find the Southport Air show?

It's about an hour from Liverpool Central - though there are trains every 15 minutes that'll take you to Southport! They recommend you avoid the traffic by getting there early.
  • 2021 show cancelled – please check the website for dates for the 2022 show (it’s usually during the summer months)
  • Open Saturday to Sunday: 9 am-5 pm
