Uffington White Horse Show - 27-28 August 2017

The Uffington White Horse Show is a traditional two day country show which takes place every year over August Bank Holiday Sunday and Monday. It offers a wide range of attractions for families and people of all ages including arena events, craft stalls, animals, historic vehicles and much, much more.

The Show is located in fields overlooked by the famous bronze age figure of the Uffington White Horse, which is over 3,000 years old.

The Show was started over forty years ago by local villagers to raise funds to replace the Village Hall in Uffington. This was achieved in 1975 when the Thomas Hughes Memorial Hall was officially opened. Since then the show has continued to support local associations and charities through the White Horse Show Charitable Trust.

Our motto is “Countryside, Family and Fun” and our objective is to bring those enjoyments to as wide a group of people as possible.

In 2015, the show grew to 120,000 spectators, who were treated to the Avro Vulcan bomber, as it thundered over the crowd for one of the last times before it was retired.

Last year, the show had an exciting first for Scotland. In addition to a full day of flying on Saturday, the Airshow was proud to present a Friday night flying display by Aerosparx, whose LED covered planes sparkle in the night sky. With fireworks to follow, it was a night to remember!

Jersey International Air Display - 14 September 2017

The skies above Jersey have enjoyed an annual air display for over 62 years, delighting and attracting many tens of thousands of local residents and visitors to enjoy one of the most eagerly anticipated events in Jersey’s summer programme of activities. Coupled with the fact that it is also arguably one of the finest free air shows in Europe.

First staged in 1952 the ‘Battle of Britain Air Display’, has taken place every year, with the exception of 1954. Alongside the air display itself the event also boast two major static displays of aircraft, one at Jersey Airport and the other in Peoples’ Park, St Helier, adjacent to the ‘arena area’ along Victoria Avenue, which for many spectators is the favoured vantage point and also boats a dedicated commentary courtesy of BBC Radio Jersey.

In 1997 the event was renamed to become the ‘Jersey International Air Display’, reflecting a move by the organisers to include a number of international aircraft alongside its traditional RAF participants. Along with the participation of many RAF aircraft the display now welcomes aircraft from further afield from as far afield as Sweden, Poland and Canada.

The annual air display is organised by the Jersey International Air Display a.r.l. a not-for-profit company, which strives to raise monies for British Service Charities and to support the Island’s tourism industry. As a result, organisers receive a grant from Jersey’s Economic Development Department, the government department responsible for tourism in Jersey and relay upon the generous support, financial and otherwise, of many leading businesses and individuals.

Costs for staging an event of this size are increasing each year and as well as the expected costs for fuel and ground power, accommodation for aircraft crew and ground support also needs to be sourced. Organisers are always grateful for the generous donations, however small, it also receives from members of the public in acknowledgement of their enjoyment of this ‘free’ event.
