Music programme takes flight

This year indie-pop favourites Scouting for Girls will be headlining the Friday evening launch event at Sunderland Airshow (26 July) singing favourites such as 'She’s So Lovely', 'Heartbeat' and 'Elvis Ain’t Dead'.   

Also performing across the weekend will be DJ and television personality Pat Sharp who will bring his famous DJ set to the show, while the Royal Marines Band Scotland, local artists and community groups are among those also appearing.

Sunderland City Council Cabinet Member for Communities and Culture, Councillor John Kelly said: "The stage at Cliffe Park provides a great focal point for visitors to Sunderland Airshow, where they can gather to enjoy top class musical entertainment, which is just one of the many free activities on the event site.

" This year we are working in partnership with the team at ‘Lets Rock’ and they are providing us with first class entertainment for our stage show."

Matt Smith from Lets Rock said: "We are delighted to be working in partnership with Sunderland City Council to bring acts to this fantastic event.

" We loved the atmosphere when we were here in 2018, and know that both our event in Herrington Country Park on 8th June and Sunderland Airshow are going to be very special this summer."

With more musical entertainment than ever before, and some brand new flying displays already announced, the programme for this year’s Sunderland Airshow promises to be bigger and better than ever. 

If you’re looking to avoid the crowds, the relaxed comfort of our Take Off Enclosure could be just the ticket.  With unrivalled views of the flying displays and in close proximity of the stage and big screen, visitors can watch the show in style.

Also included in the offer:

a welcome drink, buffet, and access to a pay bar.
activities within the enclosure for children of all ages to enjoy   
seating indoors in the marquee, and outdoors in the viewing area
private toilet facilities

Prices start at £27.50 per adult and £15 per child, for more information please click here.
