Tickets have gone on sale this week for the hospitality area at the 2023 Clacton Airshow.
Operated again by the Black Jacket Group, the hospitality area offers an elevated viewing area for the flight displays, a three-course meal and refreshments, as well as shelter should the weather not play ball at the event.
Staged by Tendring District Council (TDC) the Clacton Airshow – taking place on 24-25 August this year and celebrating its 30th anniversary – is one of the biggest events in the East of England, and the hospitality tickets have gone on sale during English Tourism Week (17-26 March).
Nicola Denny, Operations Director at Thorrington-based Black Jacket Group, said: “We are delighted to be hosting the hospitality marquee again this year at the Clacton Airshow and look forward to working with Tendring District Council to make this another successful event.”
Mike Carran, TDC Assistant Director for Economic Growth and Leisure and Clacton Airshow Director, added: “It is fitting that the hospitality tickets have gone on sale in English Tourism Week, which this year is celebrating amazing businesses, experiences and places to stay.
“We are pleased to welcome back a Tendring-based firm to run the hospitality area, and know how important the Clacton Airshow is to the district’s economy – whether it is people staying in local accommodation, spending on food and drink or at the wonderful attractions we have here on the Essex Sunshine Coast.
“As we mark 30 years we hope people will be celebrating amazing memories, and that they join us to create new happy memories too – your support is what keeps the Clacton Airshow flying.”
