Tickets are set to go on sale this week ahead of the return of a series of spectacular events in Southport.

Sefton Council are delighted to confirm the return of three major events which will take place in the sunny seaside resort across 2021.

Work is well underway behind the scenes as the local authority’s Tourism team and partners prepare to put on a fantastic and safe calendar of family fun with the planned return of the Southport Food & Drink Festival, Air Show and British Musical Fireworks Championships.

Tickets for both the 2021 Southport Air Show and British Musical Fireworks Championships will go on sale from Friday (December 11) and are expected to sell out fast.

To celebrate the return of the incredible Southport Air Show, which will take place the weekend of July 3, general admission entry will now be completely free for Under 16s. 

A brand new exclusive Pier Viewing ticket will also go on sale with limited availability for those who want to guarantee the very best views of the upcoming Southport Air Show.

Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills, welcomed the news, saying: “We are incredibly delighted to be able to put on our three flagship tourism events in 2021.

“Our Tourism team and partners have been working exceptionally hard to ensure we are able to bring this tantalising trio to Southport next year in a safe and secure way while guaranteeing fun for all the family.

“Tickets go on sale this week which will make an ideal Christmas present for the thousands of people who adore our events and sadly missed out on the opportunity this year. 

“Entry to the Southport Food & Drink Festival remains completely free, while we have some incredible new offers and incentives for families at the Southport Air Show.

“We can’t wait to welcome everyone back to our beautiful borough in 2021 and we look forward to seeing you very soon.”

Dates for the three events are as follows:

Southport Food & Drink Festival: June 4-6

Southport Air Show: July 3-4

British Musical Fireworks Championship: September 24-26
