We are huge fans of the Bournemouth Air Festival and we’re thrilled that it will be making its return after last year’s cancellation. Taking place slightly later this year, over 2nd – 5th September, the multi award-winning event promises to be an excellent spectacle as always. It’s a great day out for people of all ages, and best of all it is completely free to attend! Events like this are so good for the community and we think it’s fantastic that it is available to everybody.
The festival brings such a positive boost for businesses in the area. After the various restrictions and difficulties of the previous 18 months, small and local businesses will definitely benefit from the festival and we’re sure it will play an important part in their continued recovery.
If you are in the area, Westbourne Arcade is only a short drive from the festival site and we’d be more than happy to welcome you to our quirky little store! If you’ve never visited us before don’t worry, we’re hard to miss! We currently have a very special Bournemouth Air Festival themed window display to celebrate the occasion.
As well as this we have a wide range of memorabilia that will definitely appeal to those who are here for the Air Festival. From books and model planes (including a 2m wingspan Spitfire!) to artwork and a whole host of other aviation-related items, our selection contains something for everyone. We also have the official Bournemouth Air Festival program available – perfect if you happen to pop by Attico before heading to the festival!
If you are planning a visit to Attico and aeroplanes aren’t your thing, don’t worry! Our full collection of wonderful and enchanting gifts, books, artwork by local artists, Sid Dickens Memory Blocks, Steiff Bears, antiques, statuary, statement pieces and so much more will still be available.
We encourage everybody to get themselves along to Europe’s biggest air festival for what will definitely be a fabulous occasion and a fun-filled few days. And if you’re passing through Westbourne don’t forget to pay us a visit to see our magnificent Bournemouth Air Festival window display!
