It should either "August eighth" or "the eighth of August"

Yep. It always struck me as a little bit odd, when we write using the numbers, that it is regarded as acceptable to leave out the "the" and the "of" (eg. "on 8th August") but it's definitely not OK to leave out these words if you write "eighth".
