Blackpool Air Show

Blackpool’s annual summer air show has been cancelled for the second year running due to the pandemic.

The free event, which attracts up to 100,000 visitors, was due to be staged on the Tower Festival Headland on the seafront over the weekend of August 7 and 8.

Event organisers VisitBlackpool say that despite the gradual easing of lockdown measures and the progress made on vaccinations, there is still too much uncertainty relating to the staging of mass events during the summer months.

DATES 2022: We can confirm that Blackpool Air Show will be back in 2022 on 6 and 7 August. We look forweard to seeing you then!
