"Subsequent to the recent government announcement on curtailing large gatherings
and our concerns for the rapidly changing developments of the Coronavirus
pandemic, the organisers of the Midlands Air Festival have reluctantly had no
option but to cancel this year's event, which was to take place at Ragley Hall
on the 29th to 31st May.

The health and safety of our visitors is of course our primary and overriding
concern and throughout the last months we have already been including
additional measures and mitigation in our event planning to protect our
audience, pilots, teams, traders and volunteers. Sadly, the UK and worldwide
situation has overtaken us and we have no option but to cancel this fantastic
event for this year. It is also clear that to continue to try to run the event
could potentially place an additional and unwarranted burden on local emergency
and health services.

Both James and I are extremely sorry for any justifiable disappointment and
inconvenience this may cause but on the positive side, we and our team are
already enthusiastically planning next years show, carrying forward the
exciting surprises we had arranged and adding ever more spectacle to this
unique event.

We are therefore delighted to announce that the Midlands Air Festival will
return to our home of Ragley Hall on the 4th, 5th and 6th of June 2021. All
tickets purchased so far will be automatically refunded subject to our
ticketing providers standard terms and conditions.
In the meantime, stay safe and we look forward to seeing all of you back at
Ragley Hall for another stunning Air Festival next year.
