What’s on this Weekend: 15th 16th September

Where is the time going, we are all ready approaching mid September?  It only feels like yesterday we got back from our summer holidays and yet we are about to head into the second half of the month. 

Well time is certainly running out to make the most of the mild weather and the number of major outdoor events and attractions is definitely dropping, so here are some things to look out for this weekend (15th & 16th September 2012).  If you are going out for the weekend why not tell us where by adding a comment below.

This is one of the last weekends of country and county shows in the UK and Ireland so it’s one of your last chances to get out and enjoy a fun family day out. Here are some to check out:

The cycling Tour of Britain concludes this weekend with stages from Barnstaple to Dartmouth and the concluding stage in the Guildford area.

Of course many of the UK’s holiday attractions are still open, check out our attraction list. In addition, many of the lovely British and Irish Gardens are still open to the public so if you want to see the last of the summer planting before Autumn sets in and changes the colours and views make a bee line to them this weekend.

So what are you doing, what else should be on our list?

Shoreham Battle of Britain Air Show 2012, 1st 2nd September West Sussex

Judging by the loud rumbling noise and the house windows starting to rattle I can safely assume that the 2012 RAFA Battle of Britain Airshow is underway at Shoreham by Sea in Sussex.

For those that have not been before its a great day out, perfect for families young and old. With aircraft of all sizes and all ages there is something for everyone. There is plenty to see and do at the airfield including Dad’s Army display.

The airshow is held to support the work of the Royal Air Forces Association which provides welfare and comradeship to all members of the Royal Air Force and Royal Air Force Regiment. Since the shows inception, the event has raised over £1.5million for RAFA.

The afternoon flying display features strong support from the armed forces as well as exciting aerobatic and emotive historic aircraft displays.

The event usually includes a famous “Scramble” scenario featuring historic Spitfires, Hurricanes and Messerchmitts in a thrilling set piece with pyrotechnics and re-enactors. On the ground there will be extensive static displays, arena displays, classic cars and trade stalls.

Join the fun this weekend by travelling to the Shoreham Airport at Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex.
