Just outside Liverpool is the large seaside town of Southport - home to the Southport Air Show which delights thousands of aviation fans over a weekend this September.
- When? 15th - 17th September 2017
- Where? Southport, 45 minutes from Liverpool
- Price: see the Visit Southport website for the full price list
5, 4, 3, 2, 1... Southport Air Show is go! This family fun event, just 45 minutes from Liverpool's city centre, returns for two days of death-defying aerobatics and a host of spectacularly fast jets flying high in the sky. Suitable for all ages, there's no better place to fall in love with the aviation world.
With tickets priced under £10, this is a great cheap and cheerful event to attend if you're in or around the city of Liverpool in September. If you're feeling flash then splash out on premier tickets, which include Pier access, a limited edition 25th anniversary pin badge, morning and afternoon refreshments, a picnic lunch and a few other perks.
Aircraft confirmed for the last festival were The Red Arrows, The Typhoons and a Lancaster Bomber so you can expect more of the same at the next one. Visitors can expect high flying activity of all kinds including some breath-taking stunts and impressive formations between 9am-5:30pm on both Saturday and Sunday.
Our advice - come dressed as the Thunderbirds for maximum brownie points (and a few dodgy looks).
- Get there: Drive or take the train from Liverpool Central to Southport.
- Stay: Check out accommodation in either Liverpool or Southport city centre.
