- We highly recommend using public transport to attend this event and you may miss many of the aerial displays if you attempt to bring your vehicle into Herne Bay on this date.
- Park Responsibly if you have no option but to use your vehicle and are able to locate a parking space – Increased numbers of enforcement officers will be patrolling Herne Bay on the event date and parking fines will be issued where vehicles are double parked, parked on pavements, parked where there is a dropped kerb or a vehicle parked within 10 metres of a junction.
- Once again, we would urge motorists to think twice about bringing their vehicle to this event.
The Reds Are Back for The South East Air Show Herne Bay
We are delighted to announce that we have been able to secure the Red Arrows, Eurofighter and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight for third successive year on Saturday 19th August and are aiming to once again bring Herne Bay a day to remember in 2017.BayPromoTeam
- The 2015/2016 air show events have boosted the local economy by almost four million pounds, and when coupled with a truly breathtaking spectacle for Herne Bay, this is no doubt a win-win for the town. There are so many groups, clubs, and charities that are able to raise many thousands of pounds as a result of this event too which is fantastic.
- Static aircraft displays will be back this year along the seafront, along with the ‘Trench Experience’ – a converted 40 foot container, visitors experience within the sights and sounds of a trench during the Great War, complete with actors. In the evening, Rubber Biscuit will perform live, celebrating their 25th year, followed by an American Four Tops act.
- For this event to be the spectacle we all want to see, we’ll need the financial support of the community to get over the line. We’d urge businesses to contact us for details of advertising and sponsorship opportunities of what is Kent’s biggest one-day event. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. Thank you.

Visitors and guests can enter the trench and be met with the sights and sounds of a trench during the Great War. This also includes a re-enactor/educator who can talk to your visitors about this incredible period of history – the experience concludes with a simulated gas attack.

The American Four Tops
Soul Satisfaction and their American Four Tops Tribute feature the unique vocals of leader/founder William Hicks. From Atlanta Georgia USA he has become one of the most prominent ambassadors internationally of the Motown sound in the last two decades.
Rubber Biscuit is a 10+ piece Rhythm ‘n’ Blues and Soul band. The band is renowned for its “big sound” brought about by a three piece horn section, up to five vocalists, and four piece rhythm section.
Now in their 25th year of entertaining Kent audiences, these local legends are still doing what they have always done best: playing great music and, more importantly, giving audiences a great time.
