Join Boundless at the Eastbourne International Airshow, one of the UK’s largest and most spectacular free air shows.

Attracting huge crowds, this spectacular air show boasts a two-mile flying display line along Eastbourne seafront. Eastbourne Airshow features the very best in military and civilian aviation display teams and regularly includes the RAF Typhoon, Chinook, the Blades, wing-walkers and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, plus many more iconic jets, planes and helicopters.

Eastbourne Airshow doesn’t end with air displays – there are lots of other family friendly activities to enjoy throughout the weekend, including displays, competitions, food-and-drink stalls, live music and a fairground.

Entry to the show is free of charge, which means you can have a great day out with the family without worrying about the cost.

To make Eastbourne Airshow even more special, why not join us in our exclusive members’ area. We’ll do everything we can to make your experience of the air show as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. As a Boundless member, you’ll get free access to the area, where you can have a free hot drink and put your feet up while your mobile phone securely recharges. You can even leave your bags with us so that you don’t have to carry them around all day.

The Boundless members’ area will be located in the West Lawns on Eastbourne seafront directly in front of the aerial displays.

Dogs are welcomed to the Airshow. You might experience some loud noises and there will be lots of people, so we recommend having a dog on the lead. Please look out for the full programme of events and plan your trip with your dog around this. Please make sure you do not leave dogs in your car.
