Llandudno is to have an Air Show, on the second May Bank Holiday.
“The Estate is funding the air show, which will be free to the public, because we want to celebrate and support Blind Veterans UK, who have moved into the town, and also the RAF Benevolent Fund, both very worthwhile military charities,” said Mostyn Estates Managing Director, Edward Hiller.
“We also want to put on something which will attract visitors to the town over the second May Bank Holiday weekend. The Victorian Extravaganza is a big attraction on the first Bank Holiday and we want to keep up that impetus. We have given a commitment to stage the show for three years and it’s hoped to build it into a much bigger event.”
“We are starting off modestly, but have been fortunate to gain the support of the RAF, and of course it would be wonderful if we could bring the Red Arrows back to give a display. That wasn’t possible this year, but who knows what the future holds?” said Mr Hiller.
“It’s exciting that we have got the Spitfire and Hurricane coming to give a display, and the RAF Falcons are a major attraction. They will jump onto the beach at low tide, and they will be happy to meet people afterwards and talk about what they do.”
“We have a 1930s style poster, designed to promote the event, which will be displayed in the lead-up to the Bank Holiday at all Arriva train and bus stations and other prominent locations. Hopefully this will encourage lots of people to come to the air show,” he said.
