Where better could you find a free event of epic proportions that brings together a whole community and increases tourism for our wonderful town of Eastbourne. HUGE THANKS to EVERYONE who organises this year after year.

We had a thoroughly lovely airbourne 2019. The weather stayed dry and the backdrop was moody then beautiful blue for the last day. It was great to see more than just the usual burger bars, we enjoyed seafood(paella Pimm's and whitebait) on the lawns (very reasonably priced and all in compostable containers). We saw numberous litter pickers and there were plenty of bins available. We used the fresh water bottle filling stations regularly... A fabulous addition. On Saturday we took advantage of hospitality (ploughman's lunch at the view) and Sunday watched the fireworks from bandstand. On the lawns there was lots to see and do, with Thursday and Friday morning being less busy so smaller queues, perfect for our kids to enjoy. We are very sad it's all over now, but looking forward to next year!
one of the best organised free events ever, lots for everyone to do & see... the astmoshere is brilliant for all ages & beats travelling over to London forva day out lovely hotels & cafes stalls. The organisers should be proud of what they have achieved this weekend...
Must be one of the best free events in the country. 4 days of fantastic air displays with lots more going on along the beachfront. Western Lawns has plenty of displays, a huge Ferris Wheel and plenty of food and drink stalls. When the flying has finished for the day there is a free film on the beach. The organisation of this event is outstanding The atmosphere is brilliant and it is one of the highlights of the year for me and my family. I hope everyone attending donates some money in the buckets because it is fully deserved
What a fab day! A warm welcome from the organisers, sunshine all day and lots of lovely, interesting people visiting the Chestnut Tree House stand. Great to see you there, too, David looking happy and relaxed.
This is THE event of the year in Eastbourne. The council put in am amazing amount of hard work to ensure there is something for everyone. The Red Arrows are my favourite, fingers crossed for glorious weather in 2019.
Airbourne is my favorite time of year, with so much to see and do, it is perfect. We love taking a chopper ride over the town. Ideally you should book accommodation with private parking as it gets busy. We always book hospitality for Saturday and Sunday so we have a base to come back to and if course an enjoyable lunch!!! There is a great variety of street food, not just burger Vans, we had whitebait as a snack, paella and Greek gyros from stalls on the lawns.
