The 2014 event saw record crowds of around 200,000 who came to support the event over two sunny days! The 2014 flight line up alone wowed the crowds and included a memorable display from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and Canadian Lancaster which was thrilling, unforgettable and emotional and certainly a “once in a lifetime event”.

The 2015 event will see 24 fabulous years of the annual Clacton Airshow based in the stunning Tendring District along the award winning Essex Sunshine Coast The event organised by Tendring District Council, is a well established FREE event and promises to "wow the crowds". We will see a much welcome return of Titan the Robot who is back this year by popular demand and a farewell flight by none other than the Vulcan XH558!

Our award winning seafronts and west greensward are transformed over the two days into a fun filled event site and viewing area.  Impressive aerobatic displays take to the skies whilst a whole host of exhibition, trade stands, food court and on-site entertainment are available at ground level.

In addition to this year's Airshow, continuing with the thrill of the event into the bank holiday weekend the Clacton food and drink festival will take place on Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th August on the same site located on the stunning West Greensward!
