Not sure I'd describe Clacton as great, any time I've been to the air show there's always been a massive gap between the planes flying over it,s a nice day out if you don't mind that

Air is usually free and it's invisible to the naked eye so it doesn't sound very interesting.

Can you park for free there, or is it all pay and display ?

Why not the weekend

The only pay and display car parks i know of are one in the town centre, outside the pier and the Toby Carvery there are plenty side roads and places along the sea front you can park free, when i visit Clacton i always manage to park up in a side road for the day

Wait, weekday. Sacrilege

It's free guys, have a long bank holiday weekend and make a trip of it
There are attractions, kiosks and stalls along the seafront (to keep busy as there isn't a red arrow in the sky every second

Free parking is around

well I was interested until I searched Premier Inns for a room - guess they know it's popular - at £163 for Thursday/Friday night - over double a normal room cost.

Nice if you can get there for a day trip or two though - heat added

ta op! is here a best day/time to go?

Event opening times:
11am - 9pm Thursday & 11am - 5pm Friday.

The 2016 event will once again see our award winning seafronts and west greensward be transformed over two days into a fun filled display/event site and flight viewing area. The event site will welcome around 220,000 visitors wowing the crowds with Impressive aerobatic displays whilst a whole host of exhibition stands, food court and on-site entertainment are available at ground level.

In celebration of our 25th year and in addition to our day flights, we will be hosting evening flights taking place on Thursday 25th August (displays will start from around 7.55pm). Exhibitors will be open throughout the duration of the event.

Just after the evening flights & in celebration of our 25th year, Clacton Pier will host a spectacular fireworks display on Thursday evening.

Titan the Robot makes a welcome return on both days and will be displaying on the main event site at 11am, 12pm & 6pm on Thursday & 11am & 12pm Friday.

Festival entertainent by Grand Theatre of Lemmings will also happening on site from 5pm until the evening displays on Thursday 25th.

I think you missed the joke...(_;)

Always advise people to get there nice and early as it gets pretty packed.Since they stopped the Southend airshow the crowds for this increased.Don't need to worry about parking as I let the train take the strain from Chelmsford & back.Fish & chip supper afterwards makes it a great day out.

with the bank holiday w/e, could make a decent trip
