Will Folkestone Airshow return to the Airshow Calendar ?

Postby eddywinch82 on Tue 19 Jan 2016, 10:08 pm

Just wondering does anyone on this forum know, if there are are plans afoot to bring this event
back to Folkestone ? I do hope so ! I thoroughly enjoyed the Airshows in 2012 and 2014 and
was extremely disappointed and gutted, when I found out the organizers had
made a loss from the event due to various factors. And had called in the
liquidators And wouldn't be holding an event in 2015 !! Are the organizers
trying to get sponsors for the event and take some of the funding from the
local public purse. Which I believe the organizers of the Eastbourne
Airshow now do with sponsorship aswell. As with Folkestone the Seafront
there is not suitable to charge entry due to the layout. Unlike the
Southport Airshow where the layout of the Seafront enables the organizers
to charge entry and they have made it work. I would really like to see the
Airshow return, and would have loved to have gone to the Shepway Airshows
as it was originally known from 1990-2003, as apparently they were really good events !
Any info anyone could give me would be much appreciated.
