NI International Airshow

Evening concert and dusk air display announced for Portrush Airshow

One of the Northern Ireland’s biggest events has just got a bit bigger!

For the first time, Coleraine Borough Council will introduce an evening concert to the NI International Airshow sponsored by RSA NI which is set to feature an air display debut for any airshow in Ireland.

Headlining is the in-demand singer James Huish and his Michael Bublé Band. James is a mixture of Harry Connick jnr. Frank Sinatra and Michael Bublé and along with his ten piece band has taken the theatre scene by storm. His on stage charisma is electric and coupled with his fantastic vocal ability this is a show not to be missed.  James and his band will be performing some of the classics of Michael Bublé, Dean Martin, Paul Anka, Tony Bennett and many others.

Dusk air display with pyrotechnics Portrush

As darkness falls, two aerobatic aircraft will approach the concert site at Ramore Head and trail fireworks and flares across the sky in a routine set to music. This is the first time this kind of display will be staged in the whole of Ireland and is set to be one of the highlights of a busy weekend. The aircraft will perform a series of rolls, loops and fast passes painting the sky with bursts of colour, smoke and sparkle trails. The airshow website has video and photographs of what the display will look like.

Ticketholders are guaranteed a front row view of the display which has been specially repositioned to perform for the concert crowd only. Tickets are just £7.50 per person (children of 16 and under are free) and are on sale now at the Tourist Information Offices in Coleraine and Portrush or book by telephone on 028 7034 4723 or 028 7082 3333 (Additional £1 per transaction applies).
