So here we have it ladies and gentlemen, your line-up for Sunday 17th August on what we have dubbed ‘Bay Day’, a day which we hope will be a great advertisement for Herne Bay. Please note all times are approximate.

We are so very proud to be able to bring you this display as part of the day.

The iconic plane that is the Spitfire and the delightful Hurricane with be joining the display as part of this element of the day.
