Teignmouth Airshow 2024

Teignmouth Airshow

South Devon

6th July
as part of an airshow weekend 5th - 7th July


The BBMF Lancaster

The inaugural Teignmouth airshow in 2019 was part of a family weekend of entertainment, including flying displays on the Saturday, a major music event featuring local bands on the Friday and a Family Fun Day on the Sunday.

The Royal Air Force had been very supportive, allocating the Eurofighter Typhoon, RAF Falcons and a Spitfire from the BBMF. Unfortunately, the Falcons were unable to participate after all, because the available landing area was not sufficient.

The other flying displays in 2019 were The Blades, Will Greenwood's Yak 3 and Corinne Dennis in a Pitts Special, flying as 'Twirlybatics Aerobatic Flying Displays'.

It is always good to see a new airshow and the displays were creditable enough, although the schedule might have been shorter than many had expected. It is also possible that visitors were not prepared to travel as far to this show as they would to some other seaside airshows with a more plentiful flying list.

The local authority decided not to support the event financially in 2020 but the organisers worked hard to find replacement funding until the show had to be cancelled because of Covid-19. There was also no show in 2021 because of Covid-19 but the organisers' flight directors (R5 Air Displays Ltd) submitted bids for displays in the hope and expectation that there would be a show in 2022.

Funding problems meant that the 2022 show became uncertain for a while but after a huge publicity effort and successful public funding appeal, the organisers were able to confirm in mid May that the airshow would go ahead.

The team of volunteers worked extremely hard to give the area an airshow and their efforts were rewarded with an enthusiastic and plentiful crowd.

The situation in 2024 began much as it was in 2023. There is enthusiasm for the show but not secure funding. The dates were originally set aside provisionally but later confirmed thanks to the huge efforts of volunteers and businesses keen to see the show go ahead.

See the show's web site for the latest details for the whole weekend.

Background to the Teignmouth Airshow

In the winter of 2018 a possible Teignmouth and Dawlish airshow was suggested, but by the spring it was clear that any such show would be deferred until 2019. The organisers of the Teignmouth airshow remained willing to discuss options with anyone wishing to promote a Dawlish element but in the absence of such a pairing the organisers at Teignmouth went ahead with a Teignmouth-only airshow.

Accommodation near the Teignmouth Airshow

It is best to book as far as possible in advance. This is not only because nearby hotels and guest houses tend get booked up well before the date of an airshow but also because prices can be better when you book early online.

There are plenty of booking agencies. We find that many of the well known ones are better at finding hotels from international or larger UK chains and may suggest hotels in main towns or cities quite a distance from the show site.

Some Options

There are Premier Inn hotels in Newton Abbot (about 5 miles away) Torquay (9 miles away) and Exeter, about 13 miles from the show.

Travelodge have hotels in Torquay and Paignton, both within eight miles of the show.
