“Timings and schedules to be confirmed, and also weather permitting!

“We will post the timings as and when we know them. They will be in and out throughout the day and overnight stopping with us.”

Rhyl Air Show returns this summer with a spectacular line up, including world-class acts across both days of the August Bank Holiday.

As well as the Red Arrows, the Typhoon Display Team, the BBMF Lancaster, Grob Tutor Display Team and two Spitfires have also been confirmed for both days.

The award winning air show is fast becoming North Wales’s biggest free seafront event and the 2022 show will feature spectacular aerial displays and land-based attractions and entertainment.
