Weston Air Festival 2023


As a council we are facing some extremely challenging budget decisions for the financial year ahead and dealing with the same inflationary pressures as all our residents.

The costs of organising Weston Air Festival have increased year on year and it now requires a £135,000 subsidy from council taxpayers which we don't feel is reasonable at a time of cost of living pressures on our budgets and those of households. Therefore the air show won’t be taking place in 2023. We're always open to new events and activities for visitors and residents, but we are unfortunately no longer in a position to subsidise these routinely at the expense of council taxpayers
