Visitors to the world’s biggest free flying extravaganza can enjoy the event all day and night long in 2010 with new evening entertainment every night at Eastbourne Airbourne from 12-15 August.

Eastbourne International Airshow is offering visitors the opportunity to extend their Airbourne experience into the evening with a packed programme of evening entertainment including Bandstand concerts, live bands and a spectacular firework display.

Eastbourne Borough Council Cabinet Member for Tourism, Cllr Neil Stanley said “Airbourne is a fantastic event promising four thrilling days for the hundreds of thousands of visitors that are on their way later this week. With so many visitors enjoying the free event, we are very excited to extend the choice of evening entertainment for 2010 and offer visitors the opportunity to stay on the seafront and watch live concerts and evening flying too! Our new event, Picnic on the Proms, taking place on Saturday evening promises to be spectacular and we are very pleased to be welcoming The Shades of Blue Big Band for this special performance.”  

Starting this Thursday 12 August, the evening entertainment at Airbourne kicks off with a Big Band Night at Eastbourne Bandstand with Swingshift playing classic hits from this memorable era.  

Friday night really does offer non-stop Airbourne action all day, with Swing Street Band playing live in the arena from 6-8pm to a backdrop of flying displays from the Eurofighter Typhoon, Gnats, Blades, Spitfire and Hurricane Bomber for Come Fly With Me. Visitors will be invited into the arena to enjoy performances ranging from Frank Sinatra to Amy Winehouse, with Easy Company exhibiting their military vehicles.

Visitors can then hot foot it down to the Bandstand for a Night of Dirty Dancing, with the audience invited to get up and dance at the tribute concert based on the popular 80s movie.

Saturday night offers a brand new experience for Airbourne in 2010, with visitors invited to Picnic on the Proms. This special evening event offers families the chance to bring a picnic and enjoy the sun setting on another day out at Airbourne with The Shades of Blue Big Band, part of The Band of the RAF Regiment, performing a free arena concert from 6-8pm.
