Black Jacket Group Hospitality Area at Clacton Airshow

Hospitality tickets on sale for Clacton Airshow 2024

Tickets are now on sale for the hospitality area at this summer’s Clacton Airshow.

Operated again by the Black Jacket Group, the hospitality area offers a two-course meal, canapes and refreshments alongside an elevated viewing area for the spectacular flight displays.

There will also be shelter should the weather not play ball on the Essex Sunshine Coast on 22-23 August.

Staged by Tendring District Council (TDC) the Clacton Airshow will this year be commemorating the 80th anniversary of D-Day, the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied France that began the liberation of Europe in the Second World War.

Nicola Denny, Operations Director at Thorrington-based Black Jacket Group, said: “We are delighted to be hosting the hospitality marquee once again this year at the Clacton Airshow.

“We are looking forward to working with Tendring District Council to make this another successful event.”

Ivan Henderson, TDC Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Economic Growth, Regeneration and Tourism, said the airshow regularly attracts 250,000 visitors over the two days and is worth an estimated £12.2million to the local economy.

“We are very pleased to be welcoming back the Black Jacket Group, a Tendring-based firm, to run the hospitality area,” he said.

“Tickets are now on sale for the hospitality area, which could help to make the occasion even more special as we commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

“Clacton Airshow is important to the district’s economy – and people’s support is what keeps this wonderful event flying.”

Hospitality tickets are available to purchase at, with prices at £62.50 for Thursday and £55 for Friday.

An exciting flight programme is being developed by the Clacton Airshow team, with the event being headlined by the iconic RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, which is due to bring an Avro Lancaster and two Hawker Hurricanes for both days of the event.
