The Herbert Protocol

The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme that encourages carers, family and friends to provide and put together useful information, which can then be used in the event of a vulnerable person going missing.

The Herbert Protocol will be in place for this year’s Rhyl Airshow 2023.

This process involves a simple form that the family of the person would complete. Then, when visiting the area, bring the form – either in print or on your device – in case the person you care for goes missing.

The form contains details about the person that you may not remember in the heat of the moment: what medication they’re taking, distinguishing features, behavioural issues, etc.

It’s a brilliant initiative that could help someone be found much quicker.

Child Safety

As per previous years our *FREE* wristbands will be available to collect to write a contact number on for your children and or vulnerable adults from our security team within the arena.

If you’re unsure of the location please ask any member of the security team and they will happily assist you.

These wristbands will help the security team reunite any adventurous persons or children that may have wandered from their party or parents, swiftly and securely to minimise any stress or worry that it may cause to you, them or any others involved.

Award winning Air Show

The Rhyl Air Show was among the highflyers at a glittering ceremony to celebrate a record year in the North Wales tourism industry.

The popular event was named as the Magnificent Crowd Puller for events which attract more than 7,500 people when it was honoured at the Go North Wales Tourism Awards.

Since the two-event was launched in 2009 it has gone from strength to strength and attracts tens of thousands of visitors to the seaside resort every August.

According to organisers North Wales Tourism, events like the air show are the lifeblood of the booming  visitor economy.

Another world-class act has been confirmed for the Rhyl Air Show this August Bank Holiday

The Rhyl Air Show is back this summer with a spectacular line up, with the  Strikemaster being announced for both days across the weekend.

The G-SOAF Strikemaster pair belongs to Strikemaster Flying Club (SFC) based at North Wales Military Aviation Services Ltd (NWMAS), Hawarden, North Wales.

The sequence the Strikemaster pair will fly is very dynamic and will show off the aircraft beautifully, with high energy aerobatics with graceful linking manoeuvres. Because the aircraft has a wide speed range it will be display tight to the crowd so the aircraft is always within easy viewing. Audiences will see this fly over 400mph, with lots of rolls, loops, barrel rolls, clovers and, fast and slow passes. The engine is a RR Viper 535 with 1000 pounds more thrust than the JP5 Viper engine. This extra thrust allowed the aircraft to carry the following armament: 2 x machine guns, up to 4 x 500 pound bombs or 32 Sura rockets or a mix.

The Rhyl Air Show is back this summer with a spectacular line up, including world-class acts across both days of the August Bank Holiday.

The Red Arrows and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight has been confirmed for aerial displays across both days of the show in August.
