The Bournemouth Air Festival is more than just an air show, and this year’s Night Air programme extends the true festival feel of the event long into the evening. The electric atmosphere of Night Air, sponsored by Corona and supported by the official Night Air radio partner Wave 105, sees entertainment and events taking place throughout the town, from Bournemouth and Boscombe Piers, the Lower Gardens and town centre.
This year will see the return of dynamic dusk air displays and for the first time ever they will be on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. The remarkable SWIP Team Twister Duo return to light up the skies with their swishing and swooping displays, O’Brien’s Flying Circus are back with a crazy routine, and, in a Night Air first, the Red Devils are performing three amazing night jumps, complete with glow sticks and dazzling pyrotechnics. There will also be spectacular fireworks on the Saturday night to finish things off with a bang.
The Corona Night Air stage, in association with Wave 105, will host a selection of fantastic popular performers on both Friday 30th August and Saturday 31st from 6:35pm. From the brilliant Blue to The Feeling, Stooshe, Lucy Spraggan, Diana Vickers, Kodaline, Johnny Hates Jazz, Neon Jungle and Gabriella Cilmi – there is really is something for everyone! Don’t miss out on this spectacular event. Tickets are just £7.00 and can be purchased by contacting BH Live Tickets on 0844 576 3000 or by visiting bhlivetickets.co.uk and searching ‘Night Air at the Piers’.
Bournemouth Pier will be showcasing some terrific tribute acts including The Beach Buoys who will be spreading good vibrations across the crowd and Elvis tribute act Ben Portsmouth, who is keeping the king of rock and roll very much alive. Plus Derek Sandy will be performing his funky flow of reggae rhythms on Friday night, which will ease you into a relaxing summer vibe, perfectly set to the backdrop of the beautiful Bournemouth beach.
The East Overcliff will come to life in the evenings when the Band of HM Royal Marines Collingwood brings regal rhythms and visual splendour to entertain the crowds. The Royal Marines Combat Display Team will also be located on the East Overcliff demonstrating their impressive fighting skills with specialists participating in unarmed combat.
The Lower Gardens will be filled with family entertainment – from traditional Punch and Judy performances to stiltwalkers and face painting. Get your creative juices flowing with plane & craft workshops for children of all ages and abilities or enjoy some Jazz and Swing music performed by some fantastic artist in the Pinewalk Bandstand. So join in the festival feeling and make sure you’re part of this year’s Night Air.
