Rhyl Air Show Picks Up Tourism Award

The Rhyl Air Show was honoured at the recent Go North Wales Tourism Awards, taking home the title of Magnificent Crowd Puller, in the category of events that attracted more than 7,500 people.

The Rhyl, Prestatyn and Abergele Journal reported on the win, noting that the event now attracts tens of thousands of people to the seaside town every August.

It first started in 2009 and since then has gone from strength to strength. This year, the Rhyl Air Show attracted some high profile displays, including the first-ever appearance at the event by the RAF’s Eurofighter Typhoon display team.

Other well-known aircraft that featured in this year’s show included a Spitfire, a Lancaster Bomber and a Hurricane.

Gwyn Hughes, of Denbighshire Leisure, told the newspaper that it was great for the event to receive this recognition.

“I think this year’s festival is widely recognised as our best yet. Everyone worked incredibly hard and we have to thank our volunteers and stakeholders for all their support and their invaluable contributions year in and year out,” he stated.

Managing director of North Wales Tourism Jim Jones said that the volume of high-quality entries received to this year’s awards goes to show that the region is “truly a world class destination”.

As well as honouring events, there are a host of other accolades recognising businesses ranging from accommodation providers in different categories to varied attractions in the region.

Earlier this month, the North Wales Daily Post highlighted the efforts that Rhyl has gone to in order to improve the appearance of the town centre. It noted that since the scheme to spruce up Rhyl was launched last October, some 50 buildings have benefited with a further 17 due to be refurbished.
