About International Bognor Birdman

The Birdman competition is for human powered flying machines held each summer in the picturesque  seaside resort of Bognor Regis on England’s South Coast. Many fliers take part to raise money for charities, others design complex flying machines to compete for cash prizes, trophies and mementos.


International Bognor Birdman (IBB) – 11th & 12th August 2018

The Volunteer Organisers for IBB , now in its 40th year, have already got nearly half the funding needed for this year’s event from Bognor Regis Town Council and other supporters for which we are so grateful. However, we still need another £15,000.

We have various sponsorship packages from £500 – £5,000 available on our website.

This is an excellent business opportunity at a unique competition that benefits from world wide and massive local exposure as well as helping to raise thousands for charities across UK.

Please see our sponsorship section for details.

Help us to help your business, charities and Bognor Regis to stage another fantastic IBB in 2018. Thank you
