South West Birdman

3rd August 2019

The South West Birdman competition sees crazy aviators and would be pilots hurl themselves off Ilfracombe Pier into the icy waters below – all hoping to “fly” the furthest and be crowned champion of the event.

Organised by Ilfracombe Round Table the day-long event attracts thousands of people to the town and raises money for local worthy causes.

As well as the main flying event, the South West Birdman Competition, the event also includes a live music stage with great music throughout the day, a mixture of food, craft & charity stalls, children’s entertainment and much more besides.

11.00 am – Open to the public – FREE ENTRY
