The Weston Air Show Explorer

Double-headed Class 20 Diesel’s

Saturday 25th June 2022

Our train departs from Birmingham Show Hill and calls at Stourbridge Junction, Droitwich Spa and Worcester to pick up passengers. We continue though Cheltenham Spa to Bristol and Weston Super Mare.

The Weston Air Festival will return to the seafront in 2022 to celebrate Armed Forces Weekend.

This family festival brings spectacular air displays and flights to Weston’s bay as well as some good old-fashioned seaside fun and activities.

The airshow will deliver an action-packed flying programme, with a selection of cutting edge and beautiful vintage aircraft taking to the skies. The Event Village will feature an air display team, with stands where visitors can meet the pilots, and local and national traders offering everything from artwork and books to toys and furniture, family activities, a fairground, food stalls and bars.

Passengers may alternatively leave the train at Bristol and enjoy the city known for its maritime history, Banksy street art and the sprawling Shopping Quarter, as well as its floating bars and restaurants along Harbourside in the charming Old City.
