The Red Arrows will not perform at next year’s Eastbourne Airbourne.

Eastbourne Borough Council has announced that the RAF’s aerobatic team will be unable to take part in the air show due to “overseas commitments” from the end of July next year.

The air show is due to take place from August 15 to August 18.

The Red Arrows dazzled crowds with a display off the coast of the town in the summer.

A spokesman for Eastbourne Borough Council said: “We have been advised that the Red Arrows will not be performing at Eastbourne International Airshow due to overseas commitments from the end of July.

“While the absence of the Red Arrows at the 2024 airshow is a loss, it opens exciting opportunities to introduce fresh, never-seen-before aerial displays to Eastbourne.

“In 2019, when the Red Arrows were away for their international tour, the debut of the Breitling Jets Team in Eastbourne created an unforgettable experience for airshow enthusiasts.

“Our events team is once again engaging with multiple teams to bring thrilling new displays to Eastbourne.

“More updates will be provided in the new year as we prepare to unveil our exciting line-up.”
