Southport Air Show and British Musical Fireworks Championship

Cancelled due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) situation in the UK

Due to the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) situation in the UK and the impact that it is having, Sefton Council has been forced to take the difficult decision to cancel the Southport Air Show (12 - 13 September) and the British Musical Fireworks Championship (25 – 27 September). The events will return next year (2021).

Each year these flagship events attract visitors from all over the UK and generate millions of pounds for Sefton’s local economy, supporting local businesses.

Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council's Labour Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills, says, “Every autumn we welcome thousands of people to Southport to enjoy these two major events in the town; the Southport Air Show and the British Musical Fireworks Championship. However, as the latest government guidance on the next stages of its Covid-19 response indicate, it will not be possible or responsible for large-scale events to take place.
 

“We understand this news will disappoint a lot of people, but we all have to work hard to protect the health and the wellbeing of our communities, and the safety of everyone involved including visitors, exhibitors, traders, staff, contractors, and the many more who contribute and play a part in delivering these much-loved events.  These are the factors at the very forefront of our decision.  We look forward to welcoming everyone again next year.”
