Entertainment: The Bournemouth Air Festival 2013

Leave a comment

This week, the Piercing Pirate crew attended the Bournemouth Air Festival 2013, and we wanted to share our experience with you!

As a local Bournemouth girl I’ve always tended to avoid the annual Air Festival in the popular seaside town, as it clogs up the traffic and makes getting around almost impossible. But, this year I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, and I’ve got to admit, even though planes don’t thrill me in the slightest, I felt a pang of pride when the Red Arrows soared across the sky in front of me.

There’s plenty to see and do and it’s a great day out  for the kids, with lots of interactive displays and  exhibitions featured in the 1.5 mile festival site  between the Bournemouth and Boscombe Piers, as  well as plenty of entertainment in the sky and Royal  Navy ships on display in the sea.

It all kicks off at 10am – 10pm from Thursday- Saturday, and 10am – 6pm on Sunday and the Red  Arrows are flying every single day!

Some other highlights include: the Battle of Britain  Memorial Flight, RAF Typhoon, the huge Vulcan  Bomber, the Night Air display, and many more!

For the full schedule check out the official  Bournemouth Air Festival website, which also  provides handy information on how to get there!

The air displays commence at around midday on Saturday and Sunday, so get on down and take a look! The weather is looking good for the weekend so it’d be a great activity for the whole family to enjoy.
