The Shepway Airshow first began in 1990 when they had a 50th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain airshow. The Shepway District Council continued with an airshow every year up until 2001. They then had an airshow in 2003 which sadly was its last due to the growing costs of running this event.
The display is centred on 'The Leas' which gives a superb view from the high vantage point above the cliffs.
In 2012, the Folkestone (Shepway) airshow makes a welcome return with the Folkestone (Shepway) Jubilee Airshow which takes place on 2nd June 2012.
The display organisers are intending to keep this event running each year and have Colin Hitchins (former Biggin Hill Air Fair organiser) on the team.
