This June 7 & 8 North Down Borough Council, in association with the Northern Ireland Tourist Board, will welcome some very special visitors to their Seashore Festival Event – The Twister Aerobatic Display Team!
Formed in 2010, the Twister Aerobatic Team have performed at events across Europe and the Middle East showcasing the highly efficient Silence Twister aircraft.
The Team are incredibly versatile performing stunning aerial ballets with breath-taking routines in their purpose-built display crafts.
As part of the Seashore Festival, the team will be performing two afternoon displays on both the Saturday and the Sunday, guaranteed to wow the crowds with their daring stunts. The displays will be taking place at 2.30pm & 5.45pm on both the Saturday and the Sunday.
As well as the aerial displays, there are lots of other things happening around the town on this weekend too. Two spectacular tall ships, The Mercedes and The Golden Lion will be alongside The Eisenhower Pier and open to the public on both days for visitors. There are also opportunities for night sailings on the Saturday and Sunday evening. Tickets cost £10 and are available from Bangor Visitor Information Centre. Pre-booking is essential.
A special steam train “Bangor And Back For A Bob” will be travelling from Belfast on the Saturday and Sunday, making two return journeys per day. Tickets are also available from North Down Museum and Bangor Visitor Information Centre and cost £1 each.
At The Town Hall, a Vintage Motor Display will be taking place, showcasing hundreds of fabulous vintage vehicles and down on The Promenade, a special Summer Fair will be taking place featuring lots of local retailers selling their wares. Also making a welcome return to The McKee Clock Arena, The Armed Forces will be providing a wide range of activities and vehicles for everyone to enjoy.
Along The Promenade, a speciality craft and food market will be trading on both days. And watch out for some wonderful, especially themed, street theatre and live music which will be dotted around the town as part of the festival.
