Weston Air Festival History
Weston is home to the helicopter museum and was the venue for the 'Heli-Days' event which took place every year and featured various helicopters on the beach lawns.

The 'Heli-days' event has now been replaced by the Weston Air Festival which takes place in June each year and includes a full air show and also includes the 'National Armed Forces Day' celebrations.

Weston Air Festival began in June 2013 and was called 'Weston Air Day' as it was held on just one day. It has since become a two-day event called 'Weston Air Festival and Armed Forces Weekend'.
