Hot air balloons will be launching from Weston-super-Mare seafront later this year.

No date has been announced but Balloons on the Beach will be held in November.

Earlier this month, the first ever balloon flight took place from the seafront when the Longleat’s Simbaloo was launched.

Organisers Exclusive Ballooning will continue to work with North Somerset Council for the next free event, which will include a choreographed light show.

A company spokesman said: “The realisation of Balloons on the Beach is thanks to the flexibility and vision of North Somerset Council which has given the green light for this fantastic new event.”

Exclusive Ballooning runs the UK’s largest balloon event, SkySafari at Longleat, as well as the Lord Mayor’s Hot Air Balloon Regatta in London.
