The Event Village for the English Riviera Airshow is located on Paignton Green, which is a predominately flat site with a few inclines. The Event Village is located on even grass with tarmac road and pavements.

Disabled access viewing spots for the air displays will be situated at the Eastern Esplanade (Harbour End) and the Paignton Green event village by the Redcliffe Hotel along Eastern Esplanade, either side of Paignton Pier.

Accessible toilets will be available throughout the event site and located within close proximity of the disabled viewing areas.

If required, we recommend that you purchase a car parking space in advance from this website using this link. Disabled car parking is located in Victoria Car Park, Garfield Road, Paignton, TQ4 6AU. The car park is just a five minute walk from the Event Village along pavements and roadways. The disabled spaces are allocated on the day and we advise early arrival and parking ahead of crowds arriving.

Drones, balloons and kites

The English Riviera Airshow is requesting that no kites or balloons be flown in Torbay. Additionally the Civil Aviation Authority has declared it illegal to fly a drone within four nautical miles of the airshow site. These measures are for the safety of the aircraft performing during the airshow. Any flying of drones will mean that the Airshow is suspended until the item has been landed and subsequently confiscated by the appropriate authorities and may result in prosecution.

Emergency procedures

In the event of an emergency, messages will be relayed via the public address system. Carefully follow the instructions of Police Officers and event stewards. Should the seafront need to be evacuated, this will take place via designated routes and will be directed by the Police and stewards.
