Balloons on The Beach

We are bringing a new feature to Weston Air Festival – Balloons on the Beach.

After the air displays finish, Balloons on the Beach will see both evenings rounded off with a display of 30 hot air balloons launching from Weston seafront.

Balloons on the Beach will be the largest hot air balloon mass ascent to ever take place from the seafront so prepare to watch and unwind as 30 balloons are due to launch from the sands on Saturday and Sunday evening.

Last year, the stunning Longleat Lion balloon, known as Simbaloo, became the very first balloon to launch from Weston-Super-Mare beach in the resort’s history. The one-off flight was followed later in the month by two stunning mass ascents, featuring 5 hot air balloons.

This record-breaking assent is sponsored by Renishaw and organised by Exclusive Balloon Events.
