A Torbay Council Spokesperson said: “In line with government guidance, it is with regret, we will be cancelling the English Riviera Airshow, which was due to take place on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 June.

“We have informed our partners, suppliers and traders of this decision and thank them for their understanding. As one of Torbay’s flagship events, and an event that grows in success each year, we thank residents and visitors for their support and are sorry that we have had to make this decision. We hope that the event will return in 2021.

Cllr Mike Morey, Cabinet Member for Infrastructure, Environment and Culture, said: “It is imperative that we follow all government guidance and this applies to the English Riviera Airshow. Cancelling the airshow on social distancing grounds is to protect both residents and visitors to the Bay.

“If you have pre-booked parking, you will be receiving a refund in due course. If you have any other enquiries, please email events@torbay.gov.uk
