Friday 6th to Sunday 8th September 2019
Southport Air Show
Following on from 2018, this year the Southport Air Show is again extended to include an evening of flying 6pm - 8:30pm on Fri 6th September. The site layout for all 3 days will be the same as in previous years: on the beach and along Marine Drive. For Sat 7th and Sun 8th the event will commence at 10 am, and finish around 5:30pm Sat / Sun
With over 40,000 people expected over the weekend with site security, plus health and safety obligations inevitably there will be extensive road closures on beach, Marine Drive and Coastal Rd areas.
Planned closures are:
- Weds 4th Sept 10am till midnight Mon 9th Sept Pleasureland Roundabout to Marine Parade Roundabout.
- Fri 6th Sept 4:30pm - 10pm / site clearance. Coastal Road from Weld Rd Roundabout to Pleasureland Roundabout; Marine Drive from Fairways Roundabout to Marine Parade Roundabout plus Esplanade/Victoria Park Roundabout to Pleasureland Roundabout; lastly, the Esplanade from Weld Roundabout to Esplanade / Victoria Park Roundabout.
- Sat 7th & Sun 8th Sept 6am - 7pm / site clearance. Same roads closed as Fri evening, just different times.
As in previous years, vehicle access to WLYC during the air show closure periods should be via the Fairways Roundabout at the north end of the Marine Lake. The event planners have asked any of our members wanting access to produce appropriate identification eg 2019 Club Handbook / Diary, Club Car Sticker (if you need one, see Phil, the Club Steward). We have sent examples of these to the event organisation to enable the stewards to permit authorised access at Fairways Roundabout.
