Weston Air Festival 2020 Cancelled:
Following recent events and in line with government guidance, it is with great regret that Weston Air Festival, which was set to take place on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 June, has been cancelled.
Cllr Caritas Charles, executive member for tourism services at North Somerset Council, said: "Weston Air Festival is a brilliant annual feature on the South West event calendar and we love bringing the spectacle to the seafront and beach lawns for both local and national audiences. At this time, it is crucial that we follow all government and medical authority guidance, so it is with regret that we are cancelling the event.
"Although it is a very difficult decision, our priority is to protect both air festival visitors as well as the local residents of Weston-super-Mare. As one of the region's flagship events it is of huge importance and we would like to extend our thanks to our flying teams, suppliers, organising teams and visitors for their support for the event."
In 2019, Weston Air Festival featured displays from the Red Arrows, Battle of Britain Memorial Display and Chinook amongst others and was attended by 200,000 people. We look forward to planning for the 2021 event in due course.
