About Us

Events for The English Riviera Airshow 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. The English Riviera 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. 

All air displays are subject to change depending on weather conditions and operational commitments which could take the military displays elsewhere at short notice.

The English Riviera Airshow brings 165,000 people into the Bay each year, to enjoy a world class programme of aerial entertainment as well as enjoy a whole host of entertainment, fun and food at the event village on Paignton Green.

The event is run by Torbay Council. For further information on the event and to keep up to date with the latest news follow @torbayairshow on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or visit the event website

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 QuayMeadfoot 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.
