It’s fun… it’s social … it’s business

With monthly social meetings, in the build up to the fantastic Bournemouth Air Festival, you are invited to come and mingle with other Patrons and meet our guest speakers. Hosted at different venues across Bournemouth, enjoy complimentary drinks and canapes at each event, network and socialise with other members, and be enthralled by ‘insider information’ from our aviation related experts who present at each meeting.

Pay back to your local community…

Bournemouth Air Festival is now the UK’s biggest FREE aviation event. As well as providing an outstanding summer spectacular for local residents, it brings additional revenue and benefits to the town, both in terms of tourism and trade income. Your membership donation supports the fabulous ‘Night Air’ displays as well as the nominated Air Festival charities.


Supporting our military charities…

Our amazing Air Festival would not be the same without the involvement of the military and the assets and personnel they bring to our town. As a way of saying ‘thank you’ for their involvement, the Bournemouth Air Festival Patrons Club work with the Bournemouth Council Air Festival Committee to help raise as much as we can. A proportion of your membership donation will go towards the annual donation made to the nominated Air Festival charities – Royal Navy Royal Marines Charity, The RAF Benevolent Fund, The RAF Association and ABF The Soldiers Charity.


One thing we can definitely say is that a warm welcome awaits you when you join the Bournemouth Air Festival Patrons Club.
