There will also be party DJ sets from the McGowan Family and Chris Macmeikan MBE.

English Riviera Airshow

Torbay’s natural amphitheatre provides a unique and stunning location for the English Riviera Airshow – creating the perfect stage for a coastal event that kickstarts the UK’s Airshow season. Previous displays have hosted some world-class military and civilian air display teams, including the RAF Red Arrows, RAF Typhoon Display Team, RAF Tucano T1 and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, featuring the Hurricane, Spitfire and Dakota.

The 2022 English Riviera Air Show will take flight across the Jubilee Weekend over the stunning South Devon Bay. Our beloved airshow will be joined by a community event, ‘Music on the Meadows’, a Jubilee flotilla and the Queen’s Jubilee Beacons to bring together a weekend of celebrations.

Expect world-class food, family-friendly activities and a two-day programme of stunts, displays and flypasts! View the lineup for this year’s event. Here’s what you can expect:
