2 years ago
The Southport Air Show is back following a break during the pandemic
The iconic Red Arrows will thunder through the skies above Southport later this year in their first full appearance at the Southport Air Show in seven years!
Sefton Council is delighted to confirm the Red Arrows, Typhoon, Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and more will be on display at the 2022 Southport Air Show in what is being dubbed a landmark year in the event’s illustrious history.
Southport’s famous Air Show, which takes place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th July, will welcome thousands of aviation lovers and visitors to the resort and tickets are already being snapped up.
2022 marks the first time in seven years that the Red Arrows display team have performed at Southport Air Show over both days and the first time in four years that they have made an appearance altogether.
The astounding Red Arrows will not be the only ones drawing in the crowds however, with the teeth-rattling RAF Typhoon and inspirational Battle of Britain Memorial Flight also making a much-welcomed return to Southport’s golden coastline.
Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council’s Labour Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills, said: “2022 is truly an iconic year for the Southport Air Show with the Red Arrows appearance to help us celebrate our triumphant return to hosting huge events in the borough.
“People from all over the UK and Europe make the trip to Southport Air Show, such is its illustrious place in the aviation world and we know from ticket sales already that we can expect huge crowds this July.
“We know how much of a major attraction the Red Arrows can have and we are delighted to have them perform over both days. This announcement will mean ticket sales will skyrocket and I’d urge everyone to ensure they snap up a ticket quickly before they are sold out!”
This year for the first time, general admission for under 16 years is free while early bird general admission prices for adults are on sale for just £8 and £7 at the group rate.
Also new for 2022 are exclusive tickets for the Pier Viewing area where visitors can watch the show from the best seats in the house. Pier Viewing early bird tickets cost £18 for adults and £9 for children (5-15s).
