Sidmouth Town Council has today announced that the hugely popular Sidmouth Airshow will return in 2022 on Friday 26 August.

Headlining the show will be the world famous RAF Aerobatic Team, The Red Arrows who will return to the town skies to display at one of their favourite locations over the bay at Sidmouth. They will be joined by two Supermarine Spitfires of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and Rich Goodwin in his amazingly aerobatic Pitts Biplane. A first for the Sidmouth Airshow will be an appearance by Team Raven, an aerobatic team flying a five plane formation of the ultra-manoeuvrable Van's RV-8 aircraft.

Details regarding exact timings and arrangements are still subject to change but the Council has confirmed that the Airshow will take place from approximately 5pm. The event will include all the usual extra car parking facilities and traffic management including the closure of the Esplanade road for the public to safely enjoy the event from. Organisers will once again be appealing for donations and most vitally, collectors, to make sure that this is not a one-off return and that the event continues in future years.

Chair of the Town Council, Cllr Ian Barlow, said: “This is great news that the Red Arrows are to return to the best possible place to watch them in the country, along with some great other teams.”

Sidmouth’s Airshow will take place on Friday, 26 August 2022 at the provisional time of 5pm onwards. Keep a look out on and for the latest information.
