Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, our 2020 event was the only conventional airshow to take place in Europe!  Following the success of our event, we are pleased to announce the 2021 Battle of Britain Airshow at Headcorn Aerodrome will be held on 25th – 27th June 2021.

The 2021 Battle of Britain Airshow will be our 6th event, exquisitely blending choreographed Battle-of-Britain era aircraft displays with family friendly attractions and re-enactments. We’re looking forward to engines roaring and crowds cheering for 12 one-of-a-kind air displays in the very airspace where the Battle of Britain took place over 80 years ago.

The 2021 Battle of Britain Airshow is pre-sale ticket admission only. Tickets are available now!
