Bray Air Display will not take place in 2020

It’s a big disappointment to announce that the #BrayAirDisplay 2020, which was originally due to take place on July 25th and 26th, is cancelled.

After very careful consideration, the unprecedented impact of the global #COVID19 pandemic has forced this decision in the interests of the health and safety of spectators, participants and the organising team.

The team will focus their energies on creating a spectacular event for 2021 when they hope to celebrate happier, safer times.

Follow the Bray Air Display on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for all the very latest 2021 event updates.
