The Torbay Airshow, held in Paignton, Devon is a spectacular takes place at the start of June, the weekend event features breath-taking air displays over the stunning natural amphitheatre of South Devon's beautiful bay. The event attracts spectators from across the country and is usually well supported by the RAF (2017 included the Red Arrows) as well as top civilian displays.
Events are centred around Paignton Green, with free entertainment for all the family, including exhibition stands, bars, food stalls, display teams, inflatable slides, bouncy castles and fairground rides. Torbay Airshow visitors can also indulge in a range of retail therapy, including gifts, toys and festival essentials. Of course, it’s up in the sky where the breath-taking aerial action takes place, with a packed two-day programme of stunts, displays and flypasts.
The airshow is completely free (although car parking passes can be purchased) and there are some great clifftop vantage sites across the Bay, as well as Paignton Green itself. If you are staying in Torquay, we would recommend perching up on Daddyhole Plain, while both Beacon Quay, Meadfoot Beach and Thatcher Point are also very popular. If you are over in Brixham, we would highly recommend both Berry Head and Battery Gardens, while more great spots in Paignton include Roundham Head and the end of Paignton Pier. Hospitality upgrade packages are also available. The Family Fly By ticket gives families the opportunity to enjoy the airshow in a secure location on Paignton Green, complete with toilets, a designated seating area and a VIP food and drink area.All air displays are subject to change depending on weather conditions and operational commitments that could take the military displays elsewhere at short notice.
