English Riviera Airshow History
The first Torbay Airshow took place in 2016 and it was a free two-day event, organised by Torbay Council.

The stunning bay and unique curvature make for a superb backdrop to the air display. The air display usually include RAF participation such as the Red Arrows, as well as classic jets, warbirds and civilian display teams.

The name changed from the 'Torbay Airshow' to the 'English Riviera Airshow' in 2020.

Ground activities include an event village on Paignton Green with musical entertainment, trade-stands, fun fair, bouncy castles, food stands, and many stalls.

The English Riviera Airshow was cancelled in 2020 & 2021 due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

The English Riviera Airshow which was to have taken place on 5-6 June 2021 has now cancelled.

The Bay provides a stunning natural amphitheatre for viewing the airshow, providing a perfect location for a large coastal airshow. The event is free to attend, with parking available to purchase in advance.

The Airshow has been bringing families and friends together since 2016, this free event has grown in popularity over the last two years attracting in excess of over 165,000 spectators to the Bay over the two days.

The English Riviera Airshow 2021 has been cancelled.

It will be the second year in succession that the Paignton-based show has fallen victim to the restrictions placed on public gatherings by the coronavirus.

The major event brings an estimated £7 million boost to the early-season tourism, shopping and hospitality trades. Losing it for the second year in succession will be a further blow to the under-pressure tourist trade.

It is understood that councillors feared the air show, even with limited crowds, would become a 'superspreader' event for the virus. In addition, the problems of keeping count of the crowds and limiting the numbers on Paignton Green would have been insurmountable.

English Riviera Airshow postponed for second year

With a heavy heart, we have decided not to go ahead with the English Riviera Airshow in 2021.

English Riviera Airshow. At last night's informal Cabinet meeting, Members gave guidance to Officers that given the number of unknowns relating to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the uncertainty over the roadmap out of the current lockdown it would not be viable to plan and host a large scale event.

This is the second year in a row we have had to postpone the event, which draws in crowds of over 165,000 along the English Riviera coastline and contributes more than £7m to the local economy.

The two day event which started in 2016 had become firmly established as one of the key UK airshows, thanks to back-to-back appearances from world-class air display teams.

Cllr Mike Morey, Cabinet Member for Infrastructure, Environment and Culture, said; "We were always hopeful that we would be able to host an airshow in 2021, but with cases of COVID-19 still high and the uncertainty around when life will return to some sort of normality the right decision is to postpone the event for a further year. The health and safety of residents and visitors is paramount, and it is imperative that we follow all government guidance".

Cllr Nicole Amil, English Riviera Airshow Steering Group Lead, said; "Postponing the airshow which is one of Torbay's flagship events was not an easy decision to come to, as we know so many have come to love the annual event. We will start planning for the English Riviera Airshow 2022 shortly, which we hope will coincide with the Queen's Platinum (70th) Jubilee celebrations".
